  •  The EvO:R-Pedia Musicians Tips Section


    Welcome to the EvO:R Tips Section. We call this section EvO:R-Pedia because it is like a complete reference library for Indie musicians...Just about every tip has been used so you won't find false promises and a series of books to buy after reading each tip. This section was put here by musicians so that people that followed can take this knowledge and use it's power.




     A question about paint
    I wanted to ask a question about paint. I have remodeled several guitars, never made one from scratch but I've gotten pretty close, any way. What I always get screwed up on is the finish. I can't get that hi-gloss look. It's like the paint always soaks up all the shine which is fine for flat colors but I have a PRS that I want to repaint. My question is this. If I were going to do a transparent finish what should I use and what is the best method for applying it?
    Thanks
    Jonathan

    Rick Andrews Answers Your Question Below.
    Hello Jonathan,
    Take a look at www.stewmac.com There you will find clear lacquer for wood. If you are finishing a more pourous wood like mahogany, you should use the filler/sealer. If it is hard maple then the laquer alone is sufficient. You spray several thin coats and sand between each coat as soon as it ias dry enough to sand to a white powder. Each time you will notice the grain fills in until the last time you can not see any pours at all. Then you can buff it out and get that supper high gloss mirror finish. On the web site I show above you can find everything you need to get a pro job. Hope this helps you. These all come with good instructions.

    Hello, this is Rick Andrews owner of Andrews Guitar and a long time member of EvO:R. This section has been put together to help you with your guitar related questions. I did not agree to do this so I could simply plug my guitars, I did this so you could finally have answers to many of those burning questions you may have had about your guitar.
    We will discuss anything related to the guitar, so if you have a question about guitar construction, neck action, string height, pickups, simply send it to me and I'll answer your question on this open forum. Questions or comments email: askrick@evor.com

    OK, I do get a small plug!
