No, you do not want HVLP. I own HVLP, RP, and high pressure. HVLP is the least used. All I can say is do a lot of reading first. There is alot more to painting guitars than buying a gun and spraying paint. To do quality requires expensive materials and safety equipment. Keep this in mind, only the rich can afford to buy cheap, you buy a cheap gun, you'll be buying another one soon. You buy good, you buy once.
