A quick picture-based post on spraying a guitar.
The guitar in question is an ’89 Squier, in it’s original ‘Priest sock’ black
Here’s the body with all the hardware removed. You can see my previous DIY shielding project.

And the back…
Shielding covered and ready to be sprayed:
First coat of primer. I gave a second coat before the paint.
Three coats of paint, an hour apart, with a light sanding in between:
And the finished product:
Not perfect – a little paint run on both horns (which I gently sanded down), and a grey strip next to the knobs where I masked but the scratch plate didn’t cover. Also it’s far from a smooth pro finish when you look at it up close, but I wanted a bit of a rough DIY effect.
Paint used was Rust-Oleum Candy Pink, and Rust-Oleum Primer.
