    I bought a white mini Rok Axe guitar from eBay, I wanted to make an attempt to stripe a guitar. It turned out like shit, I've got to do so much clean up, looks kinda cool from a distance so I'll probably hang it up on a wall or something. I masked off the stripes & sprayed it red, probably not the right idea, but it was a fun project. Have you guys had any luck tryin this?

    Turned out like shit???

    Dude, that looks awesome. I've got a crappy white strat style guitar that I've been thinking of striping. If I could get it half as good as that I'd be ecstatic. Nice work.

    Wow, thanks Glenn! If I took the pictures more close up, there's smudges & parts where the paint dripped a little, it's tough. I don't think I let it dry long enough before pealing the masked stripes off, to damn excited to see how it turned out.

    I heard that Ed's old paint jobs weren't that great, (runs and shit) but really how close do you have to be to see em?

    Remember, Ed's old striped guitars are banged up and what not, so a few smudges is a great start.

    Cool! Damn, thanks guys I feel better about the paint runs & smudges now. A few things I learned, definately let the paint dry longer than 30 minutes & if you want to hang the guitar up in your apartment, it's a good idea ask your girlfriend FIRST before going through all the trouble of painting the damn thing. I got lucky though, she's totally cool with it.

    Hey Greg, cool looking paint job. I'm painting a 3/4 size acoustic red/white/black right now. Instead of masking off the stripes and spraying it red, I sprayed it red and am masking and spraying the stripes one at a time. Very time consuming, but it looks ok. I'm almost done with it.
