Re: Ibanez Finishing HELP!
Thanks for the video link those are always helpful.
I think the scraping is definitely something im going to have to do to make it look more noticeable from the front view.
What i can gather from that video (baring in mind its past 2 in the morning and im real tired) is that the edges are still taped off and the tape is pulled back after painting.
Im not planning to do a stained finish. Im aiming for a pure black, maybe metallic finish with the natural binding.
Please correct me if im wrong here guys. This is what I have in my head to do.
Prep the body.
Tape off the contours.
Spray the body.
Peel back the tape and then scrape the top edges
Is this ok?
The binding is just the natural wood of the guitar right? Or is it prepped differently?
Sorry if i sound nooby. This guitar finishing thing is a new thing to me and guitar talk isn't my forte (Im a drummer haha)
Im gonna do some reading up on binding finishes here, ill post what i find.
Thanks for all the help so far guys!
