Welcome to the progress report of my current project: build a guitar from a kit. The kit in this case is a SG style one from German store Thomann.
The kit comes with a wooden guitar body already prepared for painting. So my first task is to get some basic colour on it. Here I have chosen a plain white as the basic colour with the idea to further add some handmade drawings.
First step was to mask the parts I do not want to get coloured with some tape as seen above. For painting I used a simple spray paint from the local hardware store. After a first session the result was not that even and too much of the wood structure was still visible.
The second session with some more layers of paint got me this basic white body with the wood structure still recognisable. A look I am guite happy with.
For the drawings I bought a black permanent marker and made some sketches beforehand. The result after drawing on the body and adding a glossy coat will be part of the next post. Here is a teaser of different sketches I tried out for illustrating the guitar body.
