    This subject may light some fires. hehe. Ed used to use Schwinn Bike paint on his guitars. He loved the black. His first guitar was painted completely black. Then he added electrical tape and painted white over that. After he was finished his coating and all, he took the electrical tape off. Some idiots out there think it's just tape on a white body. He never sealed or lacqeured the wood. His paintjob was good enough. Works for me. When I reproduced the B/R/W paintjob on 2 Kramers last summer I followed his process only with stronger tape, A very smooth body-I had them feeling like they were finished before I even put paint on. After the paint was complete. I used Car paint instead of Schwin Bike paint because it lasts longer and looks a bit better. A sealed and lacquered the wood as well. I went for the more pro finish. Ya know? Check out Roland's guitar's on Ebay. He will charge $250 for Striped Paintjobs.

    Yeah on everything I have striped, I painted the item white let it dry then taped it up and painted it red then when that dried I took the tape off and sang the opening riff to "Unchained" while I remove the tape!

    when i tried to paint my cousins guitar for him, i painted it red first, then white, the put masking tape over the white, then painted it red again. it was a disaster, the paint bled under the masking tape and there was an obvious dip where the masking tape was. then, repeated the procedure for the black. it turned out pretty bad(sorry mike). and it took forever to get the stripes even with the surface. so, i wouldnt reccomend masking tape, you can get special painters tape so the paint won't bleed.
