Got a glossy black Squier Strat body for s project I’ve been wanting to do. Nothing special - just had all the bits and bobs to put together a nice little strat for my son. He wants a matte finish on it and also wants Mustang type stripes. So being the genius I am I decide to tape off the stripes and put a matte finish on it leaving the stripes in a reverse glossy black. Went straight to hell. Here’s the evidence. When I pulled off the tape the edges of the finish came off, too. Probably should have scored the edges with an exacto-knife. Not sure if I’m going to strip and redo or just put stickers over the offending areas. Up to my son I suppose since I’m making it for him.
