Re: swirl

I understand that the more prep work you do, the better the finish will look. At the very least give the guitar a white undercoat to let the swirl have some chance of showing its true colours...

Re: swirl

I had better luck using the existing factory paint as a base. Assuming there isnt alot of chips, etc....

Re: swirl

Condition and color of the finish will both play a part in it. Your base coat will affect the color of the swirl. This could be a positive or a negative depending on what colors you are using.
