Several questions.. plz :)

Well , let's start -

-I've Got this Boring Look RG270 and I thought To paint some Tribal Marks on it(Like Kerry kings B.C Rich and hetfields E.S.P JH-3 model) ,

what should I do for that? what paint and tools better to use for this kind of job?

-If I won't do that Tribal Thing I thought Just Removing the black color and Leave The Natural wood ,something like that -

Is it safe? how and with what it better to do?

-and the last question , How can I change The Humbucker Plastic to differnt color without changing the hum' it self?
like that dude done to his RG -

Excuse me for my poor english

I think the easy way to do the first thing should be sanding the body of your RG superficially until you remove the clear coat..i think a 400gr sand paper will do this..then mask the black paint you want to keep and make some tribal forms with the masking tape over the body ..then spray white paint in the parts you let open..with the forms you want of, course..and redo the clear coat when you done..all this need to be done for a person with some knowledge ..about sanding and painting..

For you second question the image you use is not correct , cause the Basswood is a "pale" wood not dark like at the one you see in the picture..but i like it this should sand untiul you get to the wood a the just finish with any Wood oil treatment ..the problem with this finish is that generally when you get to the wood you find out that the wood is made of 4 or 5 !! diferent pieces glued ..and the natural finish donīt look so good..

for the last one you can buy this bobbing toppers:

hope this helps you
