Sheldon,

I was hoping to try my hand at matching my headstock. I know you won't do it, but could I get access to the same paint? It would make my job easier. How do you spray the paint (I'm not too familiar with the technique)? HVLP gun?

Failing that, I'll try Hobbyworld and see what I can mix up (I've worked with colour matches when I was at General Paint), I just hope the paints can be mixed together to get the shade I want.

Also, could I get the decals from the headstock? or better yet, a signature? :D

Any help on this would be great! :)

(This is a near-future project, definitely not immediately needed! ;) )

You'll need primer, silver base coat, trans green, clear coat, sanding and buffing supplies and lots of wood test panels to practice on. We use industrial products that we buy in bulk quantities. Alas Corp might have some touch up size quantities. Give them a look. I'd have to see the final result before I'd hand over decals. Finishing is the hardest part of building a guitar and a candy finish is the toughest finish of them all. Practice, practice.

I`ll let you know how it looks when it's done. Like I said, it's not any time right away.

Thanks for the reply Sheldon.

EDIT: I assume I don't need to paint inside the tuning machine holes. That's all sealed already?
