info on sealing wood - painting
i am planning on painting a couple guitars - or at least having my local auto guy do the painting and i need to seal the bare wood before i give him the body. it is a raw basswood body , seen here: http://www.ofoto.com/BrowsePhotos.js...p;sort_order=0
i also need to know what kind of prep stuff i should do before i give it to him like what should be taped off? i still need to drill my tone control holes and my selector slot, which i plan to use the aluminum pickguard as the template for these.
i also have another guitar that is already painted and is getting a new paint job - i'm guessing i can sand done just enough to rough it up and just shoot it with the paint.
if anyone has anything to help out with any part of this, the info would be much appreciated.
