Hi, Ive got an ESP M-50 which i bought about 3 years ago and i want to customize it. Ive got few ideas but none are any good i was hoping you guys could help me a little. I was thinking may be about a colour change or carbon fibre vinyl wrap. also i though about putting a barricade tape (Black and Yellow) on it. I was also thinking about a little relic project but i never done them so i know nothing about them, im guesing its just sanding bits where it would wear in 40 years perhaps a white bottom coat and a top black so it would go from wood to white and black + some cig burns on the body and the headstock but keeping it black wouldnt really show this effect. Another idea i had on my mind was painting it purple but i find it boring, id like just to point out that i like black and gold combined on guitars but cant really imagine it on this guitar. I will probably be changing most of the hardware anyway including the pickups and the pots. I want to block the bridge on this as i just hate trems and floats, they just annoy me. Now i wish i kept my king V demmelmition edition but i decided to swap it for an explorer but never mind.

Some pictures of my guitar:

I love black and gold, man. Do it. I've gotten good results lightly sanding the finish so it will accept new paint. Depending on its current color ( i couldn't see the pics) and whether its a bolt on neck or not.

Okay so i came up with an idea of just buying different colour schotch tape and painting the guitar white, stick some tape on it and then scrape some of it off, if i wont get a nice effect ill repaint it all over and may be try a different design.
Will post some pics during the customization process.

You links have to be set up like this to work. You need to put it between the URL tags

Question to those who know what they're doing.
If i paint the guitar and put some laquer at the end and stick some scotch tape should i do it over with laquer again? or
would it be more wise to just stick it on before i do the laquer in the first place?
I just dont want the tape to peel off after a while.
Thanks.

test on scrap wood - some combinations of adhesive and lacquers don't play well together. Practicing and testing on wood scraps is a good idea with anything related to custom working.
