    Very very nice. Kudos on your patience.

    I will be painting one of my guitars and it will be my first try. Wish me luck.

    Good luck brother. Do you have an idea of what you are doing? And to which guitar?

    Id like to paint this white with basic poly paint from the hardware store. Im a little worried about how many coats will be needed so the blue doesnt show thru.

    I would scuff it up with some 800 grit sandpaper and spray it worh a primer. Block sand with 1000 grit and then spray with the white. The primer will cover the blue.

    really excellent execution on that SG. Who wouldn't want that?

    I made a thin blue line strap out of black denim and leather once, a custom job for one of America's finest. Fun project.
