My friend owns a Gibson Flying V and wants to get a black pickguard for it. He can't find any modern flying pickguards, and isn't very confident in h is ability to cut one himmself, so we were wondering if a regular can of spray paint would work? If so, what kind of spray? I was thinking enamel since he would be cooloring plastic, but I thought I'd get the opinions of some experts first.

get a pickguard cut if you can't find one., I know for a fact that their are places online that do custom pickguards. Spray painting it will make it look terrible, even if it looks decent to start, it will wear off. Its a nice guitar, so theirs no point on not spending a little bit more to get something of much better quality.

I think it'd work. Plus, it'd most likely get pick scratches on it, probably to the point where the white will begin to show, which I think would look incredibly BAMF.

I'd be against it, because your going to have to repaint it after a bit of use, due to how fragile paint really is. But it may be more your style if you like stuff looking beat up, with out it really being beat up lol.

They make spray paint specifically for plastic.

Scuff the pick guard lightly with sandpaper, spray on some primer for plastic, and then spray on some paint for plastic.
