RG350... Basecoat?

So im having my RG350MYE stripped down then painted in HOK Neon Green.... Saw it today and its not overly bright, the painter says its better to use a yellow basecoat under green rather than white, so what he did was strip the clear off the MYE and spray the green directly on the yellow.... Does thsi sound right to you guys or am i being screwed?..... In fact the ibanez decal I got for the headstock, you can still see bits of the original Ibanez logo underneath.... Problem is, I prepaid the guy for the job.... Sorry I can post pics yet, I pick it up in 2 days..... Anyone heard of yellow being used as a basecoat under neon paint?

I have not,, only white. I have only done 1 neon paint job but I would never have thought to use anything other than white as a base for any lighter color. I hope it still looks good!

Re: RG350... Basecoat?

come to think of it, that one neon orange job I did was on an RG350... I sanded it down to the thick-a$$ sanding sealer they use, then went white primer on it before the orange
