To fix our little issue on the back of the guitar (damn you frisket sheets!) we basically had to do a complete re-spray of the guitar from the primer up. This included the tracing and cutting of new frisket sheets, spraying new colour coats, and for the first time - I overcame my fear of the airbrush to create black drop shadows for the flames.
The fix is definitely a big improvement in the paint job, and the drop shadows really make the flames pop! My son couldn't be happier with the result. Now it's time to get out the Minwax poly and get some layers of poly on this sucker.
