you should leave the headstock black, like his bumble bee. but paint over the epi decal or something. i just got finished not too long ago with my frankenstrat.
my rig:
Fender Stratocaster
Fender acoustic Gemini II
Kustom Dual 30RC
Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff
Digitech grunge distortion

Well, the good news is if his LP special is black then all you got to do is rough up the clear and mask off the stripes for the red and white, then clear.

I think you'd want the base to be red. You look at the original paint scheme for the EVH frankenstrat, there is more red than anything.

+1, By modifying it it is almost like you are damaging it in re-sale terms therefore it loses value. Plus its and epi special they are cheap guitars to begin with and they won't appreciate in value for a long long time.

If you are modifying it to make money stop now, cut your losses and sell.

Other than that, good luck but 25$ is not alot and the finish you will acheive is unlikely to be of a high quality.

Regardless of how it was done by Eddie, the best method to use would be primer, white, tape, red, tape (only leaving stripes exposed), black, clear coat.

If I recall correctly, that's how it was done by Mr. Van Halen, or it might have been red, white, black.

Idk... all I know is how most paint is applied it's darker color first O.o but doesn't mean Eddie followed that rule lol.
