I am gonna be building a Gibson Thunderbird 5 string and i was curious anyone
would be able to redirect me to a "how to" on taping the guitar i hope to do a green or orange back drop instead of the original red so any help would be great.
Well, you lay down the stripe color (after sanding the finish and such off), maybe the green, and once that's done you tape around the body. Add on the next color, orange in this case, and let it dry. Take off the tape and you'll have an orange guitar w/ green stripes. After that, finish the guitar with a a good glossy finish.
