Wow what a cool idea! Result looks great but I'm a little worried about the idea of submerging guitar into a bucket of water, is that ok? smile.gif

I would like to paint my squier strato in this way: is it possible?

Edit: Yes, and it's really cool: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_xWjoeLNcmQo/Sa76...wirl+finish.jpg

Ok, I have been doing a lot of reading about this on the net. Seems tougher than it looks! I am shopping for a beat up body to try it on, and will document the steps and materials for you guys. Seems like you need a big tub...borax (not sure if this is what we have in the US as borax which is powder soap)...oil based enamel paint. I will keep you posted!

Just a stripped down body that already has a base coat of paint on it, shouldn't be bad for it.

that looks amazing, but the wood of your guitar will be wet again..., and that's not so cool, my advice, if you have an old guitar please don't do it, tone will change i'm pretty sure, if you have a new guitar go ahead, but still your age count will be pretty much starting again smile.gif

I'm not sure if the wood will be wet again after this, the primary coat is already on, and there is no long-term moisture exposure. If the body is dried right after the paint job, should be OK. But I do agree that older, valuable instruments shouldn't undergo such a treatment! biggrin.gif

OH, so the first clear coat is still on, yeah that can work, but you have to be very careful taking the old paint then, and left all the clear coat on smile.gif

I think with a proper base coat, and immediate drying, the wood should not become wet at all. The guitar is in the water such a short time, I don't think it will be affected. Also, I have read that you plug the holes with wax, to stop water from getting in there!

it will look amazing with those colores, the important thing is, you have to pick carefully the shade of the blues, it is the most important part.

now if you wanna go with something secure, just check for some finished paint jobs out there smile.gif
