1. Selecting Materials
The guitar finish materials we propose can be needed if you don’t have it already. Please look to each product individually in the Materials category to understand better the use of each products we propose here:
- Sanding Paper Set is definitely something you will need (if you don’t have it). During the painting of your guitar you will have to sand your wood several times to make sure to have a smooth and perfect finish.
- Copper Tape is needed to remove electromagnetic interference and make sure that your pick-up will provide a clean sound without background noise.
- Sample Wood can be very useful if you purchase a guitar kit with ash or mahogany. It will be exactly the same wood so you can try your finish upfront to make sure you will have it right when doing it on your guitar body and neck.
2. Wood Preparation
- For open pore wood such as mahogany or ash, we strongly advised to use a grain filler in particular when using spray can to apply color and varnish. You can choose a colored grain filler that suits more your guitar paint project. The use of a clear sealer is less needed but we still advice ot for perfect and smooth results. It will be applied after grain filler before applying the translucent color.
- For close pore woods such as maple or basewood, we suggest to use a clear sealer. More varnish coats instead will work as well.
3. Coloring the Wood
Two Nitro spray is required to paint the body and get the sunburst effect:
- 1x spray of the translucent color of your choice is needed for the edge of the body
- 1x spray of the translucent color of your choice is needed for the center of the body
Note that you should have some paint left which you can use for the neck (headstock, etc.). Also it is easier to create a Sunburst with a dye darker for the edge than the dye use for the center of the body.
4. Varnishing Guitar Body & Neck
A minimum of Two Nitro spray cans is required to vanrish the guitar Neck and the guitar Body.
- 1x nitrocellulose varnish spray for the guitar body
- 1x nitrocellulose varnish spray for the guitar neck
It corresponds to a total of 800mL. Note that you can select matt or gloss finish. Please change the quantity to 1 spray if you desire to varnish only the guitar body.
5. Polishing the Guitar Body & Neck (Optional)
To get a super high gloss, a mirror effect, a protective layer and avoid slightly dull finish, we recommend the polishing set. Still you will get already a very good results without it but it will bring your guitar paint to the next level.
