So I might pick up a 70-something Fender Musicmaster with the finish already stripped off. If I have a friend hand paint it with some cool designs like the Clapton Fool SG, what kind of paint should she use? Also, how should I coat it afterwards?

I checked the paint thread, but nothing covered a multicolor design, it was all solid colors etc. Thanks!
