bought a better guitar to kinda mess with. this thing is in bad shape when it comes to the body/paint. I I am going to repaint the entire body flat black, my guitarist step dad is a cabinet maker so I am going to have him laquer the back of the neck, and the rest of the guitar is going to be flat black, including the head stock. Just wondering if their could be any problems with that. I am pretty mcuh going to replace everything but the bridge, since it came with that, already have a new tail piece and tuners. porb going to start sanding it down pretty soon and get it down to bare wood. This is where the questions come in. Is their anything special about painting wood like this. Ive painting plenty of other stuff before just wondering? http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=293522 you can see pics of the guitar here^. Thanks for all the help.
