I will vouch for the projectguitar.com tutorial. I did it to an RG570 body and it came out perfect. Just make sure to follow the directions closely

The handle and lion's claw tutorials are also pretty spot on, here's mine after the carving...

Re: RG370B refinish and mod project


Hello friends again, some process from today.

i will try to explain my work and the techniques i'm using, for those who want to make a mod and a bit confused now "about what should i do".

Actualy i'm doing this for the first time, and may be i will need some help from the pro's of this forum. All the comments are welcome, and of course i wanna see your tips to achive a good result.

so here we are..

I began the project today.

Black Ibanez 370B korean, i would like to recieve you comments about korean models, are they good or bad.....thanks anyway.

1. To remove the factory paint, first of al i decided to build a kind of guitar bath, in order to preserve the paint remover, that it not falls on the floor. It's also good that the guitar will kind of take a shower inside the bath, so you don't waste a lot of it for nothing. use a plastic bag.

2. useful tools for the paint remove process.
gloves
paint remover
brush
and some wide scrape tool

picture sharing

3. begin with applying a well coat of the remover over the whole body, and give it a time, i gave a bit more time and a bit larger coat. about 30 min.


pic hosting

4. after an hour of scraping the old paint, starting with a first sanding attempt, this is the result... i guess i will need or to send it a bit more or apply another short session of the remover. any suggestions???

picture sharing


but there is something wired with the body, i have a thick coat of sanding siller, how to remove it till the clear body, or it's not needed in case that i don't want the natural look...

good night... see you tommorow guys, with another new progress. cheers.

Honestly if you're not doing a natural finish you didn't need to remove the paint and you sure don't want to remove the sanding sealer just to have to re-seal the body again.

All you really had to do was scuff up the original clear coat with some 400-600 grit sandpaper, clean off the dust, then re-paint it!
