    Put the white stripe back in.

    In the process I added locking tuners.

    We end up with this. Flat finish and smooth as butter.

    Nice shot of the blue in good lighting.

    Wow that looks really cool! I was thinking of doing something interesting with my RGA7 because it's a fairly standard-looking guitar and it's cheap enough to warrant some experimenting. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I was really liking the white, but dayyum son, looks great! Why not replace the bridge? Unless you find it okay.. I had one and hated it. The updated ones have more room for intonation.

    The white does look real nice but the white had to go on first so the blue wouldn't become so dark.

    I'd like to upgrade the bridge but I'm just not sure what to get, any suggestions?

    Hi

    I'm in Southern Ontario and am trying to find some suitable paints to paint my guitars.

    Did you just use white over the original finish? and how did you apply the finish? Was this a spray can or air brush?
