Thread Name: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
Subject: RE: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
Ignoring whit the result might look like , there's a reason for not painting an acoustic guitar. Paint is, in simple terms, varnish with a powdered pigment added. Paint weighs more than varnish. And adding weight to the soundboard of a guitar can only mute it, at least to some extent.
