there is no way you will be able to paint that on your first try. that takes a lot of practice and know how.

your best bet is to either send it to a custom guitar painter or to get somebody local to do it.

Custom Strat
Mesa Boogie Stiletto Ace
Fulltone OCD
Electro Harmonix Small Clone Chorus
Dunlop Crybaby Classic
MXR EVH-117 Flanger
Fulltone Soul Bender

i have the saga LP kit, and if you want to have a finish like that, good luck
the guitars come with a polyeurethane coating on them, so even stomach and battery acid wont get it off. sanding will do, but the 'flamed maple top' is just a veneer, and its about 1/16th of an inch thick, and its VERY easy to sand through it, especially around the edges.

it looks like a chromolsion (sp?) semi-clear coat over a veneered top

theres horrible spraypaint kits that can do that but that will only end up looking like you did it with a horrible spraypaint kit.

i have a similar, yet much less noticable, effect on my custom built... theres a paintshop here in town that sells automotive paint, he mixed us a custom color of what appeared to be semi-clear blue and alot of pearl, im thinking the pearl effect may be what does it

but thats just my speculation

hope that helps =]
