I am getting ready to finish a Jazz Bass neck and here is my problem. First, I will be finishing the neck in nitro lacquer. I was thinking of tinting the neck, but I also want to paint the front of the headstock the same as the body color ( Ice Blue Metallic). I have finished many guitars and basses, but this has never come up before. I know tape and fresh nitro definitely do not play well together. I have thought about cutting a template of the headstock out of cardboard and laying over the headstock after the blue is painted and then carefully shoot the tint, but not sure if that would work or not? Any ideas?
