Bass Primed and Ready to Paint

    

We have Jeremey’s bass all primed and ready to paint. It’s not quite as simple as it sounds, though. This body has about 12 coats of white primer on it. It was then wet sanded with 400 grit sandpaper until the finish is like porcelain. Paint never hides anything on guitars, but it will show even the smallest imperfection. Notice that we have a “working neck” on the body for this part of the process. It lets us handle the piece with ease and clamp it into our painting vice.

The next step will be to spray the pearl base and mid coats on. It’s getting exciting now!
