Haha looks like some of my projects at this point.
FYI, doing a little poking around, it looks like you'd need a 16 oz can of that and one of clear which would be about $50 shipped:
A can of the Duplicolor I mentioned earlier is $11 but it's half the size of the Reranch stuff and I assume their clear is probably the same cost/size so the cost difference is negligible. Given that, I'd go with the Reranch products...
The Duplicolor is probably an acrylic, which is good if you are a seasoned painter and can work fast.
The nice thing about Nitro lacquer, is that each layer melts into the other. No crinkling and no sanding until you get to leveling and polishing.
You are correct, Dupli-color is an acrylic lacquer:
I'll be taking your advice when the time comes. Reranch has a lot of other cool colors as well as a great forum...
Just means you have to let it dry between coats and scuff it with 330 or 400 grit.
Based on what you said though, it seems to me that nitro is less work and more forgiving. Probably the better way to go for someone who really hasn't extensively spray painted anything since model cars almost forty years ago...
@jtcnj, I must of missed this back when you posted. I'm not sure if they're even available anymore but if they are, the short story is you probably don't want to buy one, at least not at what they're listed for. I'm 0/3 when it comes to QC issues with this seller's listings...
Great article with good close ups.
I missed your reply - thanks.
Been keeping the GAS in check, but like with any addiction, you never know what bump in the road might trigger a fall off the wagon.......
From the Walter Becker auction. A Kauer Banshee w P90's & wraparound bridge.
I just got a funny feeling that even if you were to get it for $500 that company is still going to make sure you somehow pay near 2k before you get to see it at your door step.
Maybe you can register with a credit card with a $750 limit to give yourself a bit of protection and leverage.
Itll sell for more than $500. +25% auction fee+tax+ shipping.
I think it's safe to assume.
I like da blue one toooo.
Yes, my point was how much more? I'm wondering if it hits near 2k. +25% is a far cry from 4x
I am unfortunately no longer a member. I was able to swap the FB in the post below for a really sweet 2010 Gibson SG straight up and I am psyched about it, but for anyone else considering leaving the club via trade or sale that involves shipping, nota bene— the receipt below shows the price I had to pay to exit. That is from NY to FL. I had to use a bike box because it wouldn’t fit in a standard guitar or bass box in the soft case. Another moral of story: save the box it came in!
And I say.
Let the punishment fit the crime
A crime of vanity at that. Me playing a Firebird sorta looks like a kid playing his daddy’s guitar. Sorta like the guitar version of David Byrne’s Stop Making Sense suit.
Ha! Wheres that picture?
This is a very cool modern version of a firebird:
Is a 1990s MIK Epiphone Firebird worth $600? There's a guy in my area selling one, in sunburst, a model V I think, but I don't know if it's quite worth that - if it were a set-neck I'd say sure, but for a bolt-on I'm not quite so sure. Opinions?
