Thread: What Color???

    What Color???

    What color should I paint my guitar? I was thinking of a transparent color, but the grain doesn't run sideways but vertical, I wouldn't like that. Please don't say Frankenstrat, because I don't want a VH guitar, I want to create my own idenity. Right now it's Mettallic Blue, and I'm gonna put a chrome floyd in it too.

    Here's a picture of a body that Warmoth sells.

    I found some badass colors that I think you might dig if you like mettallics. Is made by House Of Color and its called Shimrins Kandys. They sell it at some auto stores and sometimes even WalMart. Its in three stages. Primer it white. First stage is a very mettallic silver. Has tons of metalflake. Dusted my whole spraybooth. The next stage is your color. They have red, green, blue, purple, orange and I think even black. The last stage is the clear. It's not very hard to do. You adjust your color depth by how much color you spray. I used three cans on this Ibanez.

    I was wondering when people would start accessing the custom car paint market for guitars. I am so sick of red, white, black and blue for guitars. when are we going to see more metal flake, etc; ?

    Its happening OL. The thing now is the muscle car stripes. Like Chevelles,Camaros and Cobras. I always dug metalflake. Tons of it. Like a bass boat.
