I hope nobody has posted the same design as this before but here is my SG Punisher paint job so far. It's my first time painting anything like this but so far it seems to have turned out good.

Hopefully tomorrow ill get finished with fret buttons and get a pic of them alone and them maybe ill get to putting the guitar back together.

My plan for the fret buttons is all black with a skull on each button.

I also need to get the nose of the skull onto the strumbar, im trying to decide wether i should hand paint the nose or tape it off and spray it. Any tips would be appreciated.

Edit:
Here's the Fret Buttons:

Edit 2:

I'm having problems with my frets sticking so im going to go buy some Lithium Grease to lube them up, hopefully that will fix my problem.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the process you went about using? I've seen a few different ways from people.

EDIT: Sweet job, by the way. I hit post too quick sometimes.

Ummm...i had some trouble with the skull. First I switched out the pick guard from the GH2 version (My brother wanted a white pick guard for some reason) so the body would be all black. Then I was hoping I could just use the skull pattern i made out of cardboard to just spray the skull onto the guitar but it ended up bleeding under neath the pattern.

Since that didnt work but i had a really sloppy skull pattern on the guitar i just made a pattern that would cover up the part of the skull i wanted to keep but this time i cut it a little bit smaller than the actual size. Then i put tape around all of the edges and cut it to match the original size of the pattern. Then i put it on the guitar and painted black around it.

Im sure if i used much lighter coats of spray paint that i would have ended up not having to make a skull pattern taped off at edges in order to stop the paint from bleeding through. But it worked out.

Oh and i left the pick guard on the whole time so i wouldnt have to deal with matching it up when painting them seperately. If i wasnt painting a pattern over both bparts of the body i would have taken the pick guard off and painted them sepperately.

BTW: check out the fret buttons

i went to wal-mart and bought spray paint, it said something about plasti-coat on the bottle so i thought it would be better for this, and then i bought a can of clear gloss overcoat which should protect the paint.

i didnt sand at all and so far it seems fine, im having a little trouble with the strum bar though.

I didnt go for the highest quality stuff because i was convince i would screw this up somehow. But if you want high quality there is this spray paint called Krylon and there is no need to sand or primer before use and i dont think you even need to put a clear finish over it. From what ive heard it really nice and doesnt feel like paint after its dry, it feels like plastic.

so if your gonna do this go for the krylon paint.

i was hoping i could assemble it this weekend, but my grandma surprised us and she showed up at my house (my dad, my mom and my birthday are coming up on the 12th, 13th, and 14th) so i really dont want to be at my house cuz she is freaking out about me turning 18....

not exactly sure when ill have finished product pictures....hopefully soon
