    Dude, if you mess up, you sand it down and do it again! Go for it and have fun with it.

    ill help till rols shows up....if its the frankenstrat: 1.paint black then apply tape. 2.paint white ,then pull off tape to reveal black stripes.(this is the original b/w charvel strat which became the franky.) 3.apply tape again and paint red then remove tape to reveal stripes(the frankenstrat.)...........kramer 5150: 1.paint white then apply tape 2.paint red then pull off tape to reveal stripes. 3 .apply black stripes by applying tape strips perpendicular to each other and painting inside the strips (kinda like a frisket).....as far as paint krylon is the most popular choice. 1."banner red" 2."gloss white" 3."gloss black". and some sort of primer.

    thaqt's pretty much it in a nut shell, as for tape you want to use the blue plastic 3M or the faintish green finline tape you can get either here:
    http://www.handsontools.com/store/li...roduct_number=
    you can use black electrical tape for the 3\4 stripes but all the other sizes you need the blue or green, my preferance is the blue.
    good luck
    Rol.
    btw email me if you want good pics or have any problems.

    you can actualy just wetsand it and primer over it if you want, taking the finish off is a major job you might not want to tackle, so just wet sanding to rough up the surface will allow the primer\first coat to stick.

    ok after this last post i promise ill shut up, ok if i wanted one of the three candy stripe jobs, which would be the easiest, and im going to run through what ive learend just to double check, 1. i sand down the body to show wood, "we'll yous'e the kramer 5150 paint for example" 2. paint white, 3. lay down the tape, electric tape and tape of other size's 4. paint banner banner let dry then remove tape, 5. leave white stripes and fill in other stripes with black. and thats it?
