    Ever since getting an HVLP spray gun setup I've been wanting to apply a hard, glossy clear coat to an Alder guitar I had previously finished with oil. The oil just didn't look good or provide any protection for the soft Alder. The tricky part is that most clear coats (lacquer, nitro, water...

    Got tired of the frayed tolex and wanted to give it a facelift. Peavey 5150 Refinish - Imgur I've already stripped everything out. I'm in the process of getting the glue off, alternating between citrus strip and goo gone. Once I get this stuff off, I plan to stain it a dark red. Here are my...

    I've been looking for a chrome/mirror refinishing service for my ibby 7. Already looked at CAguitarworks - they've stopped providing it as a service. Also looked at sims custom shop and they don't offer the service to anything other than their 'custom' built bodies and necks which I find strange...

    I got this a couple of weeks ago as a project guitar to practice refinishing. I've now stripped the paint all down, and suprisingly the back is nice wood too. nothing special, but works with my plans. i still need to work down the whole thing a bit more with some fine sandpaper, but that part...

    I got my RGD 2127Z a good 3 months ago and I finally have some musical downtime to get her refinished.

    I'd like to replace the bridge on my RGA121, as it is rather tarnished and rusted on the E and A string saddles and I can get the part, but I want to paint it black to match the rest of the hardware. Ideally, the paint would be coated with a clear coat or something so the paint wouldn't just...

    I've been planning for a while to refinish the body from my first electric guitar, and slap some better parts onto it to create a Parts-O-Caster of sorts. So far I have the body (of course) a Wilkinson trem and a Strat pickguard, later I'll be getting a Mighty Mite neck (since they're pretty...

    Well since I've gotten it I've felt that the black has always been a little boring especially for this particular guitar. Not to mention its got all those freaking holes in it for 2V, 2T, 2 coil taps and 1 phase switch and I usually never like that many options. So a few ideas have come up in...

    I need to raise a whole bunch of cash so I will be selling my 2127, that means the body is getting refinished and I'm looking for opinions for what finish would be easiest to sell. Stain or paint? What colour? Keep in mind the headstock is staying black so should I stick with black on the body...
