    WHEN YOU DO STRIPES ARE THEY PAINTED OR ARE THEY PIN STRIPED? IF THEY ARE PAINTED ARE THEY CLEAR COATED WHEN YOUR DONE?
    & IF YOU ARE RESTORING ONE DO YOU REMOVE ALL THE OLD CLEAR COAT BEFORE YOU PAINT IT?

    i can't speak for rol, but he has helped me with mine...what i did was seal the wood, then apply the base coat (white) and let it dry...then i taped the guitar and painted it red, then taped and did the black....no clear finish/lacquer, it should be just the paint...

    I think the only way to do it right, and Rols, back me up on this, is take a black body, mask off where the stripes should be for the "white and black" striped Frankenstrat. After you have a replica of the original black and white, mask off where the white stripes are on the red, white and black version of the Frankenstrat(can I legally use that word?) and paint it red. remove all the tape and you should have it. The black "tape" you see on the red Frankie is actually the original black stripes from the first white and black paintjob on the Frankie.

    yes if you are making a franky that is how you do it, but I start with bare wood seal it then put the black, I don't start with an already black guitar body, paint doesn't like to stick to that and also if you want to do it correctly you need to have the wood underneath for all the wear.
    there is no clearcot on Eds old guitars just paint, you can feel and even see the hardlines in between the stripes if you want really good pictures of his stuff closeup email me I'll send em to ya and you can see just what a cosmetic peice of shit those guitars really were, but ya know what I love em that way they automatically feel broken in.

    BTW I've been busy latley did I miss anything ??

    Rols, yeah dude, I'm on fire tonight! Just start checking my replies to the posts in the guitar room. I don't know what's gotten into me tonight.

    nobozos, I went in to the peavey forum to see what the usual ass kissers, er...I mean posters were patting each other on the back about tonight, and saw your post on the Korean wolfgang.
    You know the shit's gonna hit the fan tomorrow {:
    How can you be so mean? Don't you know what a wonderful peice of guitar technology you're evaluating? Do you have any idea as to how many packing crates go into the making of one of those fine instruments?
    You must not be a real guitar player if you can find fault with the Korean cadillac of crap.
    I mean, have you no heart? They're only charging 800. for a guitar that cost them about 12. to put together, so how can you say there's no quality in that?
    Why buy American, when there are so many good firewood factories going to waste overseas.
    You really have your nerve. Why the hell should we pay an American worker a decent salary and affect profits when we can pay an overseas worker in cab fare and a KFC 2 peice combo each and every day.
    Boy, are my bro's at the peavey forum gonna tell you a thing or two.

    i used krylon..you can see a pic it at my site, before anyone says anything, the quality isn't that great and makes the stripes look a lil jaggedy, and i know the body shape and headstock isn't correct, but thats as close as i could get at the time....

    Monty-Jay,

    I just checked out your site. The guitar looks great. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    Just one question, what's krylon? I've never heard of it.

    Oh yeah, also, on your "met tones" audio clip...
    Is that from the Black Album DVD? If so I'm gonna have to get it

    Krylon is a brand name of spray paint, not sure if they sell it overseas under that name.
