Re: EVHs stripes finish?

I think you first paint the guitar white and then you tape it all up and spray it red and similar with the black stripes. Try going over to

vintagekramer.com I think it is explained somewhere there.

Try this link. It's translated (very poorly) from Japanese but I was able to do a great EVH stripe job from it. http://www.universaljems.com/fun/5150trans.htm

A word of advice if you decide to attempt it. Keep the red & the black coats 'very light' just enough to provide coverage and not enough to create 'ridges' between the colors.

Here's an RG I did using that info.

This picture makes me want to get a cheap rg on **** and build one! I love my rg 2550 but I've always dreamed of having the "Red Devil". Honestly I am to lazy to do the painting myself. I would have to send it away to make it someone elses problem. Beautiful picture!

I warned you the text was bad. Besides, a picture tells a thousand words and they are enough step by step pictures to piece it all together.

Unless you want a relic look real fast, I'd suggest getting it cleared over. Mine is.
