Alright. I'm done for today.
I've stripped almost all the paint on the guitar, except from the sides, cuz its a bitch to get the paint out from the corners...
I'll probably be done with it by tomorrow.
Procedure was simple. Apply, wait (about 30 to 40 minutes), scrape/sand, repeat.
Now. I have the option of a free
custom pickguard. It can be made out of stainless steel or brass. What do you guys think? yay or nay?
Second, I can't figure out what type of finish to choose. The grain on the wood is not that interesting (it's confirmed. It's cedar) so no stain (and the body apparently is a 3pc cedar one). Options are automotive paint or some other kind. What color? Idk... I was thinking about some green (Type O negative still haha) since this would be my third black guitar (no) if I did the satin black finish... But again, green with silver or whatever color (brass) pickguard??? Not sure on that.
I NEED OPINIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, to the pics:
Product used (industrial scale ftw)
Paint and clear coat (varnish) starting to come out
Ahhh... Some quality office time to wait the paint-stripped to take effect
Result after 3 rounds of paint-stripper plus scraping/sanding the leftover goo
More to come !
