To understand the basics of re-finishing, you should read:

Project Guitar Tutorials


ReRanch 101 - Finishing Basics

Read it 3X, then re-read 2X. Also, stick to 1 brand/family of finishing supplies for the primer/sealer, colorcoat, and clearcoat.

Here's a brief description for painting EVH's Frankenstrat. I couldn't find the one with lots of pics and details but you can google it.

To TS, provide more details where you need help.
