Im gettin my new guitar soon an Rg350dx an i have a Vintage sg right now so thought id do some customising. What i want to do is make the guitar look like natural wood with a cool symbol on it.

The hardware is coated in gold right now and im planning on making tht black. Wht type of paint wld be good for tht?

Do i put the picture on the bare wood then let tht dry an then cover it with varnish or the other way round?

What type of paint should i use for the pictures?

Im going to buy some new humbuckers aswel.
What type sound okay and are pretty cheap?
