Ibanez JS1000 WH project

Hello folks!

I've started a project to turn a JS1000BTB into the discontinued and beautiful JS1000 White!

I will be posting some pics once I get my camera back.

So far We've taken the guitar apart and scrapped the BTB finish off.

The only thing I can't really figure out is what type of "white" was on the JS WH. Was it a Solid White color or was it Pearl? I can't really tell from the pictures available on the web. So far I think it's Solid White.

This will be fun and interesting! So if any of you have been thinking of doing the same thing...just follow this thread so you can see the final Product!

Solid white. Try to find something with Titanium dioxide in it ... which helps keep it from turning yellow. Nitrocellulose will add a lot of yellow color to it as well. What paint/clear are you planning to use?

How much of the finish have you actually removed already? If you haven't removed the sealer, leave it there. You don't need to remove it, just scuff it up a bit, and will save a lot of work resealing the body.

(This thread really should be over in the JS forum.)
