So I'm Painting My Old Bass :) 2007-08-02 19:27:19 Reply

recently i got the bright idea to re-paint my Very First bass guitar, a Squier Bronco Bass. so i sanded it all down and i am now applying layers of Primer.

I intend on making it white fading into black.

i already sanded, but when im done with my primer im going through again with some fine sand paper to make sure everything is nice and smooth.

ill be sure to post pictures as i go!

:almost done with primer....

Audacity and REAPER are both very good programs. Check them out :-)
I have a forty-year-old acoustic guitar...it'd be fun to paint that.

Good luck with this cause I sure as heel know I couldn't do it... I mean putting back all the bits and pieces and stuff. I could figure it out but never take the risk. I play guitars; I don't build them.

What is the clear paint for? To help fade the color to black and white, right?
