    My guitarist wants me to get the body of my bass painted. But i think it would be easier to wait till i buy a new one.

    Wud it cost much and would i be able to do it myself or should i take it to a shop.
     
  2. it's a lot of work, you can't just paint over it, you have to take off the existing finish. www.reranch.com is the place to go if you want instructions and the necessary paint and sealer and everything.
