Anyone ever try air brushing an old RG styled beater?
Specifically, that cool JPM-1 Picasso artwork....I have never even used an airbrush, and some of the designs I've seen online look way over my capabilities....however...the JPM-1 with the Picasso artwork at least appears doable, considering each color is solid, with no tricky shading...so....I would think one thing that could make it enormously easier to have a go at, would be to have the original or even duplicates of the exact stencil (or whatever you would use) of the graphic....I have a great $70 black cheapie RG 220 that is begging to be 'upgraded'! Does anyone have experience doing this stuff? Doyou suppose one could contact Ibanez directly for the stencil,etc?
Obviously, the first step would be stripping the face down to wood I would think, and I've read the last step would be to take to an auto body detailer to spray the clear coat on.....If anyone knows of any online resources , I'd be happy to start researching this....specifically the JPM-1 graphic too.
