    I'm trying out a new paint scheme. I painted this with acrylic paint and plan on shooting with 8-10 coats of clear gloss when finished painting. Any siggestions on how to finish this (or if it will even work?) View attachment 123051

    Also any suggestions on a pickguard?

    I like it . Pickgaurd I would go plain white, other wise it will take away from the finish
  3. You could use acrylic clear coat. I've done that over furniture I've painted. That's really cool, btw.
  4. I like it! I'd have a clear PG made for it to show as much of that finish as possible. I did just that on a P-Bass I had years ago; I had done a really sweet oil finish on it & didn't want to hide any of it.
