Yello.
If someone has been very observant and/or stalking me on the forum, they might remember that I've been mentioning this Strat-guitar I'd like to rebuild. At the moment it's has a standard, black finish. It's not ugly, but I've toyed around with the idea of repainting it.
The problem is that I have no idea where to get such paint. I take it that just regular construction-shop paint could damage the wood or affect tone in some way?

So I was wondering if anyone know where I could find paint/finish that's useable for my guitar, or can recommend a brand?

Thanks in advnace!

I used automotive paint for my guitar and i got primer and gloss from lows. It turned out pretty good at the end. I'll let you know the brand I used once I get back home sunday..
I'll put a pic up of it if u want too of the steps i took to paint it.

Oh and this would be a good oppotunity to change the pickups if u want. wink.gif

A can of cellulose spray is what you need.

You have to find it in Norway though since these can't be shipped. Because ... *KABOOOM*

I actually painted my guitar a couple of months ago and it wasn't really that hard as I expected it to be. I went to a paint shop, chose the best metallic paint from like a million samples, they mixed it up in front of my eyes, which was pretty interesting laugh.gif
I painted the guitar but the clear coat lacquer wasn't good enough so it started to crack after some time. So you only have to be careful with manufacturer...
