    Depends on which guitar you're talking about, but for Frankie, correct me if I'm wrong Rol, he painted the body solid black, taped on the stripes, painted it solid white and then peeled off the tape making it white with black stripes. A few years later he taped it up again the same way, painted it solid red and then peeled off the tape again making it red with white and black stripes.

    he used tape to create the stripes. like stated above, he would paint one color, then use the tape to create the "stripe" of the first color. example. you first paint the entire body white. then tape it off where the stripes should be. next, you paint the guitar red, over the tape and all. you peel off the tape, and you have a red body with white stripes...

    I may be wrong but black first, tape then white

    Step 2 tape then paint red

    Here is a webpage that explains it

    He also had guitars that were just taped too. I think for example he had a blck Charvel with yellow tape as the stripes. Usually though he did the paint-tape-paint method as above. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    the black and yellow was paint, he did however have 2 guitars that were taped up with colored electrical tape in multiple colors, and just so everyone knows the B&W frankies 3\4" and the squiglies were paint, the small lines on that guitar were pinstriping tape look:

    </font>[/QUOTE]I was wrong here I forgot that only one of those guitars is tape (the one that is facing away from us in that picture) it was the purple Kramer that Ed played in concert a couple of times before he taped it up, it's known as the "Rasta", the other stped lloking guitar in that photo is all paint except for the pick tape on the lower horn
