*looks at RG that's no longer being used due to missing locking nut parts*

I think I may have to revive my RG and try this out!

I'm guessing I'll need to repaint it white (currently black) like I would prime any wall I was painting?

That's a good question. His site has been down for quite a while. I talked to him several months ago and he wasn't accepting new work at that time but he may be by now... if you can track him down.

Re: Painting The guitar

Darren has started working as a handyman last what I heard, so that could mean he's out of the business for good.

If true, swirls are done for good.

Re: Painting The guitar

by "oil paint" I believe the article means an "oil based" paint, and NOT a waterbased paint.

More lessons on painting guitars can be found in the same site www.projectguitar.com. You will get much more guidance there than here.

From black to a lighter color, what I have done is sand the black paint, until at least the gloss coat is gone, then spray it with a white/grey primer. Sand smooth (not super smooth), then paint with gloss coat of the preferred color. From there it is a matter or coats management. www.reranch.com has a tutorial as well.

It would seem that he is:

http://hercfede.com/

Follow the links until you get to "recently sold itens", and "swirl gallery".
He's done some pretty amazing swirls this year, but if you want one, it's going to cost you, and the wait may be a while.
peace
