Ok well I don't think these were coverd in the ultimate refinishing thread, so here I go.

I'm going to paint the back and front of my guitar while hanging, and then the side while it's layig down, slightly elevated on a block or something. My question is, Do I have to mask the side while I'm painting the front/back, and do I have to mask the front/back while painting the sides?

Well, You should ideally mask them both off just for ease of use (It's alot better to mask twice than to sand down what you just painted) Remember, there is a thing called overspray, and it sucks. You could probably get away without masking the sides when you paint the top/bottom, but I personally would just spend the little extra time to do it to the extreme.
