Hi guys...erm,i was just wondering...cos my friend kinda dropped his guitar by accident ...it wasn't his fault ...it was the bag,it just gave way...any ways,he wants to get a paint job for his guitar ...and then i thought whether the new coat of paint would affect the guitars ability to play...or in other words...its tone quality..

I don't think so. If it does, it would probably be a very discrete change. That is, unless he lathers his guitar with paint an inch thick. In that case, I can see some changes in tonality.

if hes taken a good chunk outta the paint when it fell then maybe, if its perfectly fine as is, i personally wouldnt bother, up to him tho

what model is it?

paint can slightly effect tone and sustain.
i would think a bad paint job especially.

how about you post a pic of it. perhaps it's patchable.

^yeah, i agree sometimes.


i mean wear marks look cool. but ive seen some bangs, made me cringe.

in general, strats can take a hit. some nice finished guitars, look really bad.

Why am I suspicious that it may have been you who dropped your friend's guitar?
