If you're going to build an EVH guitar, just get a strat-kit and put all of your own parts on it instead of the crappy stock ones. I have active humbuckers in mine and its working out great

No, what i'm asking is: Can I already put masking tape and paint it white?

Can i just paint over it (Eddie Van Halen black & white style) without needing to sand it down?

You'll have to at least scuff sand it ... 400 grit to remove/rough up the Clearcoat, then 600 to smooth it a bit. You don't need to sand it to bare wood, scuff sanding will give the new colorcoat enough texture to adhere properly.

^ +1. If you do not scuff it up, the paint wont stick well.

all these people have mention a very high grit for sanding between coats but you don't need to go 1000 grit. it does **** all.
