I am painting my headstock today and have one question. Do I paint the back as well as the front of the headstock? I havnt been able to find a picture of a guitar with a painted headstock to see if the back of the headstock is painted.

thanks

Is it your strat?

I wouldn't paint it at all but if you're all set on it just paint the front.
I've got something in my front pocket for you.
Why don't you reach down in my pocket and see what it is?
Then grab onto it, it's just for you.
Give a little squeeze and say: "How do you do?"

no, it is my custom V that I am building, and I just found out that I should only paint the front.

no more replies necessary! thanks

Gibson guitars have painted headstocks, all around, front, back, and sides

Binding's another story

They also have painted necks....

Unless you are painting the neck also, only paint the front. Otherwise it will look plain stupid.

Is it a Jackson headstock? Just paint the front, I think they look better that way if you're not doing a painted neck. However, on a Gibson style HS, you can paint the back and not the neck (look at a ZW Gibson or an example of this). I would think you could also do it on a Jackson-style HS by going up to the scarf joint.
