So, I figured I'd start this thread to document a project I'm working on, but I'd also like some advice from anyone whose repainted their guitars. I have a very bog standard Les Paul guitar that by no means is anything special, it cost me a meagre £89, but it has a nice sound, has fairly good connections (given it's price) and plays quite nicely. The only problem is over the past few years, the crappy workmanship on the neck meant the frets have completely busted and warped. Rather than go through the arduous task of removing each fret with equipment I don't have, I figured I'd buy a new neck and completely repaint it (never liked sunburst...), I've always wanted a 12 string, so I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone Here's the guitar, I'm going to spend tomorrow taking it apart, sanding down the paintwork and beginning to get it all nice and smooth for the initial primer. I'm aware of the general process of sanding down etc, I'd just like to know if anyone has any good tips for the painting or any brands which are pretty good to use, I don't have access to a spray gun so aerosol cans are my only option.
