    After taking way too long for me to paint the guitar.I have no idea how many times I put the tape on the damn thing and just to rip it off before painting [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img] .

    I finally sent it out to Rol for assembly. He did a great job and it plays nice and smooth.

    Jeez, this looks fantastic !

    I never thought of being able to do it this way...

    So you ordered the kit, painted the body and headstock, and then sent it all out to Rols to assemble.

    Hmm, interesting ! Interesting indeed !

    I ordered the kit from http://www.greggrogersguitars.com/ and painted it then sent it out to Rol. I had a ton of fun painting it and also I didn't ruin it by trying to put it together.

    Who is this mysterious Rol? Can someone post a link? I want an EVH guitar but it looks like Peavey will not make a lefty model. I know Ernie Ball makes a lefty Axis sport,but alas,no Floyd Rose.

    So I'd like to build one but I dont want to mess with aligning the neck up and stuff.

    Basically, Rol knows anything and everything there is to know about Ed's guitars. If you have a question, he's the one to ask. He posts on here often so you shouldn't have a problem finding him.

    Do you need any special equipment in order to paint it ?

    Or is it just a matter of acquiring the space, getting the paint (spray or brushes), the tape and just going for it ?

    How long did it take you to paint it ?

    Here is an old link that I used to help me paint the guitar.
    http://www.vhforums.com/cgi-bin/vhlf...c;f=8;t=001126

    I just used Krylon spray paints, 3m striping tape and the closeup of the 5150 and various pictures from the internet and oh yea some beers [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] . To me the painting wasn't hard but I tried to get the stripes as close as possible and I did alot of retaping just to do the white lines. It took me about 2 hours just to get the tape the way I wanted .Of course I had some bleeding in the lines and I screwed up some spots. I should have asked more questions but I wanted to try it solo as much as possible. Also it was my first time painting.

    Onirb,

    Guitar looks great, especially for your first time painting. Makes you want to do another one, huh? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    EVH: Definitely. Playing guitar was my sanctuary. It was the one place I could go to if I got fucked around by a girlfriend, or anyone else, for that matter. It still is. If there’s something I can’t deal with, I can just spend hours playing. It’s a God-given gift – I certainly don’t know where the ideas come from. They’re obviously given to you, and you have to keep your fingers moving and your mind quiet. I try my best to not think about thinking, so I can just let it flow. Because when I start thinking, forget it. <br />So....why he isn't playing guitar ? ? ?

    Just one question that's always puzzled me.

    You spray it black first yeah ?

    Then you put the tape on it, and spray it white - voila, a white guitar with black stripes.

    Now, you tape it again. But if you spray over this, you are going to spray over your already created black lines. Do you have to retape over your black lines as well ?

    I only ask because of this picture (courtesy of coolez) :

    White guitar with black stripes taped up

    If he sprayed red now, surely he'd spray over his alreay created black lines...

    Am I missing something here... ?

    The 5150 and Frankie are done different ways.

    The 5150 is a white base. Then taped up spray paint red then you paint the black stripes on.

    The Frankie is first a black base then taped up and painted white. Then taped up again and painted red.


    Here is the 5150 painted white with tape.
