Advice Needed: Paint job on my Epiphone TBird

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by mvekob, Jul 11, 2014.


  1. Hey guys,

    As the title says I think I want to re-paint my bass as much as I like the color I really want the bass to scream "me". Now I wonder if there a particular reliable brand of paint or recommendations for this situation? I figure since when I've learned a significant more about playing bass I'd purchase a high end bass. I just think it'd be fun to add a little flare, I was thinking a nice bright orange or even a neon orange. Let me know what you gus think(Orange has been my favorite color since I understand the concept of colors and it's just my jam). Also, any key pointers or videos you could recommend as I plan to do this myself. It seems like a fun project.

    There are some videos of painting guitars and passes on the tuber. Some are very informative. Good place to start.

    Is it a color finish or a wood grain fish?

    I refinished a Squier VM Jazz in Duplicolor Metal Specks "Burnt Copper" with good results. If you want something eye-catching, it'll do the trick. It should be available at many big-box auto parts stores. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1405294167.964303.

  8. Im gonna do mine soon. Its a gothic. Gonna keep the neck and head flat black, then accentuate the grain with some filler mixed with indian ink. Sand it back, then grey stain it, gradually working out to a black burst. I think it is gonna be seriously boss!
     
  9. May even add some flake to the oil when I clear coat it too. Yummmy
