Paint the color of one of the stripes first. When it's dry, mask the stripes with an automotive paintshop grade of masking tape in the width you want. Now spray the second color of stripe and let it dry now mask those stripes. Now spray the main color. Add several coats of clear and let dry thoroughly. Then buff to a high gloss.

I went with three. I'm not say that's the magic number, but it did work for me. Post a pic when it's done. I'd love to see it. By the way make sure to take everything slow. Make sure that the paint is dry before moving to the next step. My paint job took about a month. Another tip: cut a small piece of wood to fit the neck pocket. Attach it to the body. This will serve as a handle for moving and hanging the body to spray and dry.

use the blue masking tape it works better... and for the thin lines use electrical tape. it does wonders. i did a 2 tone project on my strat and it worked great. after your done the guitars not gonna be all flat since theres different layers bulging. i used a thick coat of clear gloss and it smoothed it out

Not bad... Nice twist on the original, but I'm more impartial to the black stripes on a white body....

I like it. At least the finish doesn't scream "EVH!!". It's too subtle for that.
