The neon's are a major PITA to spray. House of Kolor has the paint color for the SK, that's what Ibanez used originally. It's expensive, and yes, the paints are very toxic. The pink and green are the 2 hardest colors to spray of all of them.

Do you think if I gave my body to a good car sprayer and told him I want the one out of the house of kolor, he'd do a good job?
I got an automotive paint shop to do a RG body for me. I masked up the neck cavity and pointed it out to the painter. When I got the call that the body was ready for pick up, I went down to the shop and to my horror, they removed the masking tape and painted the neck cavity. They said, and I quote, "they thought it'd look better". I asked how many guitars they've done before and they said that it was their first one. Plus, it wasn't a very even job.

Big lesson learnt, unless they've painted up guitars before and proudly show you a photo album full of pictures of their custom guitar paint, don't use them.

P.S. House of Kolor is in the US. You may be better off sourcing the paint yourself.

ThAnks for the advice! I've contacted SimsCustom (www.simscustom.com) and asked for a quote. I really want it done right and since they have dony guitar bodies before (!) I be really confident in trusting them.
