well... I have a cheap old squier and I'm thinking about what should i do with her?
I've almost completed the sanding.

The point is...
I've allways liked the looks of that hendrix's monterey strat, but I am not very good at painting so i dont know if its very clever to go in that way...

In the other hand... I love Muse, and love matt's guitar, this one



How can i get this finish?!

Do you think it would fit well in a strat?

Thank you

PS: sorry for my sucky english

It's been chromed, but the chroming has went wrong which is were the purple/blue is.

It's a Manson Custom Shop for Bellamy,

You'll pay a fortune for the chroming.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

It's Made Of Chrome.

The Chroming Has Went Wrong,

It's The Guitar Matt Wanted Within 2 Weeks But Manson Couldn't Quite Get The Chroming Person He Used To Get It Finished On Time

Oh... bad news...

Those draws on the monterey strat can be made with acrilic paint?

considering it went wrong its sexy as.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

Hendrix did it with nail polish and spraypaint, just so you know. (which means you could do it like that, too).

i think you could get chrome spray paint, but im not sure how well it'd work... if you could get a good shiny finish in that you could mist some very dark blue over it to try for the same kind of look, but it may be very difficult to getthe same look... as for the hendrix strat, it is possible, a lot moreso than the muse guitar, but will take more time, you'll need some good stencilling skills if you want to spray all of it, but it can be done.

^ I'd freehand it instead of stenciling. I'd draw the black lines on top of the greens and reds. I'd also watch out for paint build-up ... wetsanding after drying to ensure there are no ridges or demarcation lines that will affect the clearcoating. Gotta watch out for those bumps/bulges, etc.

The red to white tranisition is pretty simple. More of blending, as in misting the red over the white or the white over the red.

Good Luck!
