    Hi
    at school i am building a couple bass guitars....all up 4 maybe more :D

    anyway i remember someone saying once that you really shouldnt use spraypaint to finish off a bass, so what is recommended to use if i just wanted a solid black finish?

    seemed like a good place to put this.
     
  2. www.mimf.com has some excellent information on finishes.
     
  3. Black Dupont Automobile Laquer applied with an HVLP can yield excellent results.
