    you have to use finline or 3M plastic tape to get all the corect stripe sizes, and yes you can use electrical tape to mask with, if your patient you can just cut electrical tape to the width you want but it's a pain, on the otherhand the finline tape will cost about $9 a roll and you can buy about 10 rolls of electrical tape for a buck and a half.
    paint your guitar white, tape it off where al the stripes will be than paint it red then pull off all the tape, the black lines are stenciled on meaning you tape around leaving open the part you want black then paint it.

    I know what I want and what I'm going to do I just need the time, with school back in session and working 6 days a week and still having to finish off all the eddie guitars it's tough, I hope to have something in my hands early next year
    and you guys will be that first to know, matter of fact I'm gonna send one to LarryJ for a review

    That works for the Kramer and 5150 series, but if you're looking for old skool, you need to start with a base coat of black, than tape it off and paint the white, then tape it off and paint it red. Probably a good idea to remove the tape between colors [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    So you will have the white and black like on VH1, then if you want to add the red, just tape it off again... If you decide to just use electrical tape for the stripes and just paint red over that, be warned you will have a crappy paint job that will peel PDQ.
