I just acquired an old guitar for a bargin. One problem is that on the stabilizer bar the logo has come off over time.

Am thinking about making a stencil and painting/spraying it back on, if so what would be a suitable solvent?



Its that writing just above the pickup selector which says Roland G-707

I've never seen that type of guitar in my life. What you could do is: make your stencil, use some some silver or gray spray paint, and after you put the logo on there, use a few coats of spray laquer to finish it off and prevent wear and tear on the logo.

Hope this helps, and Good Luck!

Thanks dude. Ive never used/bought laquer before. So I should buy it as a can and then paint it on, or should I spray it on?

Spray it. There's a thread on it in Building & Customizing I think.

Looks really interesting. It's not really my cup of tea, but interesting anyways! It's nice to see a guitar which isn't a Strat, LP or Superstrat sometimes

It may be ugly to some, but its one hell of a guitar. Sustians forever thanks to that stabilzer bar. As you said it does make a change, I like something different in my collection.

What do you mean?

The guitar was designed by the Roland company and built by Ibanez.

That guitar is so unique I love it!

Don't use solvent! Instead, scuff sand it so the paint will have enough roughed up surface to form a bond. Use 400 to 800 grit to lightly sand it.

Spray White in the area where the brand/logo goes. Let it dry for about an hour. Stick your stencils to cover the area which will remain White, spray the Black. Wait an hour, wetsand very lightly the demarcation lines between the White and Black with 1000 to 2000 grit. Then spray your clearcoat.

For spray paint, get Duplicolor colorcoat and clearcoat. It's Acrylic lacquer.

If your stores carry the "old" Krylon, you can use those, too. The "new" Krylon is Enamel and it's not ideal for this application.

BTW, how much did you pay for it?

Good Luck!

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

Thanks man, Ill follow your method. The stabilzer bar is metal by the way. Would this effect your method?

I paid 150 pounds for it, not bad for a that cost almost 1k brand new.

Holy virgin mother of !!! Awesome.

As Saxon Marsh mentioned and after checking on eBay, leave it alone if you plan to sell it.

If it's a keeper and you're confident about your skills, the Duplicolor Acryli paint would be perfect ... after all, they use those on cars.
