So I have been looking online all night at paint ideas for strats, I thought about doing a swirl at first but I have decided I want to do a monterey strat replica. I'm Gonna get a body offline. I was wondering what should i use to paint the white and red colors on the guitar? also for the intricate designs on it i thought about using paint pens, good idea or not?

Yes indeed. I'm doing to same, but building the guitar.. Im not gonna find it for you but guitarattack.com has a good tutorial on how to do it. The red is "Fiesta Red" a 1956 ford thunderbird color. White is just a white spray.

I know this is slightly off-topic, but is anyone else here pissed that Fender stuck that stupid sticker on their Monterey strat in the middle of the white section? No need at all.

yeah that is pretty stupid, it makes the guitar look kind tacky.
