I think I need to do a Kickstarter for this guitar.

    "Fake wear" Yawn!

    I'll give you, the color is cool, but make it look new and then i'd be interested.

    OK, I have always wondered- your location says Manhattan.

    How do you paint a guitar there? Every one is on top of each other, and it would seem
    like it would be hard to have enough space to do it without getting overspray onto the
    neighbors stuff.

    I saw a (I think) Samick that you painted a salmon color in another thread that looked
    great, BTW.

    Out a window, on the subway, in an alley... A dude spray painting a guitar body is like, one of the least offensive things a New Yorker could do in public.

    That's the nicest looking metallic finish I've ever seen.

    Color reminds me of the agave blue mexican strats that they made a bunch of in the 90's. Meh.

    The color is great. The "wear" is not great.

    You would need that even if you bought the guitar, it needs a total re-finish. Who knows what else is wrong with it; looks pretty abused.

    Cool color. Dumb fake wear. Ruins the look, especially with the "oops!-we-somehow-carelessly-and-absentmindedly-sprayed-black-first" undercoat. Put a new pristine glossy showroom finish of that faded teal on that strat and I'd be into it.

    Painting a guitar in a Manhattan apartment is something only a desperate fool would do. So I did it twice.

    I painted these:

    Basically, what I did was I completely covered my bathroom with plastic. Opened the window. Hung the body from the shower rod using a wire hanger, held my breath and sprayed. Then, closed the door and waited. Then, holding my breath, I went in and sprayed another coat. Repeated this process a few times. I had never used rattle cans before and I learned I could never paint for a living....but the bodies came out just fine for my tastes. The bathroom also survived.

    I have since moved to a new, somewhat larger apartment, but this one is a new renovation, so no chance in hell I'll paint in here. I'd have to do it at an artist's studio nearby.

    I love the agave blue Mexican Strats! But then again, blue is my favorite color, and I'm half-Mexican.

    Nice man, 5/7.
    Start that Kickstarter man for sure.
    People are sick of donating to charities anyway.
    People wanna support guitar addictions now.
