Gotta say, even though it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped, I loved every second of it.
This is what I started with.
Now the scary part... first time taking a guitar apart.
Wasn't so bad.
Time to sand this mother.
I forgot to take pics for the rest of the process, so just behold the shitty results.
The back. I practiced dipping lots of stuff and didn't have too many issues. When it came to the real deal, I got nervous and my helper was less than...well, helpful.
I think I had too much paint and could have used a bit more thinner.
Guess this means I get to swirl a guitar again! Let's see if it's still fun after a few more tries.
I'll have pictures of tomorrow's attempts and hopeful success.
I'd say leave it. That looks kinda cool.
