    Hi,

    I am new here and I have a question I hope someone can help we with. While on another forum I was shown pictures of beautiful guitars with dragon enlays on the body and fretboard. Another poster suggested that I get a custom paint job if I liked the dragons so much. I want to do that very thing to my PRS Singlecut Custom SE. I live in St. Louis Missouri so I would like to find someone in the States that can do a reasonable good job with painting a dragon on to my guitar body. Has anyone done this type of custom painting done to their guitar before? If so would you recommend to me that person?

    Thanks!

    There has to be plenty of good airbrush artists in your neck of the woods. There are amazing artists just doing T-shirts and such. It would be difficult to justify the cost of getting a pro to paint the SE.

    Check out Mike Learn's work at http://www.learnguitars.com he's about as good as they get. He's up in Boulder, no affiliation.
