i want to do a spray paint design on my guitar, i read the tutorials and some say to strip the guitar completely of paint and some say to only strip the top finish or something like that. i plan to use a stencil design. is there a difference between how the paint will attach to the guitar if i completely strip it? versus, just a little for the paint to grab on to? do you recommend to strip it?
strip it all the way down...then get your bass color on however many coats it may take, then spray your design on with your stencil..again however many coats your want, then finish it.

When you finish putting on the base coat, spray one coat with the stencil (masking off areas you don't want covered).
