    Custom Paint a Guitar

    Hi Guys,

    I was just wondering, anyone here how to custom paint a guitar?
    I mean wad are the things needed, the time frame taken, etc.

    I wanna make a matte black finish with some designs of my own.
    I read about the need to sand down the guitar's paint, can i use industrial strength paint remover instead??

    Oh yeah, dun tell me to bring to someone or shome shop to do it; coz i wanna try it on my own, juz dunno how to.. ^_^

    cheers ( i realised the 2nd - 4th lines start with 'I')

    well... if you wanna do a matte black look guitar...

    just sand down the current finish...

    spray "flat" black all over ...

    clear coat.

    go over with 1200 grit sandpaper ... voila~

    matte black guitar. with satin finish.
    what designs are you thinking of putting on it?

    i re-did one of my strat bodies... maybe i'll post some pics..

    Wad u meant by clear coat?

    after spraying 'flat' black still nid to sand it down??

    also i read that satin finish can turn glossy if u kept rubbing long enough, and thus is irreversible..

    alos wads the diff between satin and matte?

    industrial grade paint remover doesnt get through polyurethane. she's a tough one to get through.
