    Hello, I recently finished my guitar with brushed epifanes clear gloss varnish. It is very yellow because it is quite thick. I am planning to handbuff it with sandpaper and stuff. Will it grind down the finish layers so the yellowy part will become a bit less than before? any advice? Thanks :)

    I wanted to paint my rg370 from Black to Jewel blue. I have the strings off, wasn't sure how to disassemble the rest of it. Do the volume, pickup selector knobs pop off? This isn't my go-to guitar, but I want a project and always like the JB finish. So I've got some wiggle room on...

    I'm throwing together a project, mainly for the practice of it and something to beat around on. Nothing special, it's an RG220 body I got off ebay. Anyway the paint is chipped all the way down to the wood in some spots. So it looks like I'm gonna need to take it back down to bare wood. I have a...

    Hey, Folks. I have a custom Fireman body that needs painting. I wonder if anyone here would be willing to do a professional paint job on it for a reasonable price? I would do it myself but I just don't trust myself enough to do a good job. Thank you, Feel free to PM me if you're interested...

    Anybody ever used Rust-Oleum Flourescent spray paint for their guitar? I was killing time at Home Depot today at lunch and decided to check out the spray paints there because I've got a RG470 that I'd like to paint. As I was looking around I noticed they had a cool looking Fluorescent section...

    Hey guys, I've been thinking on painting my Ibanez RG5EX1 (I'll Include pics). I have been thinking about using the purple-ish chameleon paint that changes colors. Or -> Just painting the swoosh mark behind the Ibanez logo blue to match the pups; and paint a blue/black checker-board pattern...
