    I would like to customize my 66 RI some day and I was thinking about some old school hot rod or lowrider pinstripes. What are your opinions? I'm not looking for too much like full body. Mainly just fill in the open body under the tailpiece. Possibly a few extra accents. Almost like the minimal white sg in the photos.

    Stripes on an SG... the 2006 SG GT comes to mind.

    For me, no. For you or others, it's up to you :)

    I am not a fan of stickers as the glue can do some bad things to paint (especially nitro). But a custom paint job, go crazy. But it will be hard to sell later, so plan on keeping it forever.

    I don't buy stuff to sell it later. Not worried about the resale value but I do want to make it mine and give it some personality.

    Your call. Personally, I dig it! You don't need my or anyone else's approval though; do what looks good to you. :thumb:

    Like they said. Do what you want to. I think ANYTHING that we do to our guitars that gives US a better feel about the instrument is great. If you like Lemmy's bass painted on your SG, go for it, others may prefer a Smurf or two. Whatever you like. I have seen many SGs with designs and stripes that look great. Go for it!

    I'm going to do it once I get some money. I just wanted to see if it was socially acceptable. Lol
