Default Guitar graphics?

So I was looking at my electric guitar and i realized something; it's too plain. It's an Ibanez GAX70. All black. It's quite boring. I was thinking about getting a friend, or someone else, to draw/paint on it. But I have no idea what paint, or whatever, to use. Or if this is even possible without tons of work and money. It's like a polished surface.

what you have to do, is take all the electronics/ neck, anything in the body out. including knobs/ pick up selector. then sand off ALL the paint, starting at a rougher sand paper, then smoothing it with something fine. now, pick up some spray paint and primer. put on a coat of primer, let dry, sand smooth, repeat 3 times or so. then start with your lightest color, and paint away. sand after every coat so it's smooth. you can use painters tape to make patterns/ designs. have fun lol, be prepared, your gonna have to cut some wires, then re solder em when your done

well i'm not planning on being the one to paint. i have some pretty artistic friends. i was thinking of putting the name of the guitar on in caligraphy or graffiti. and some other graphics, i'm not sure what tho. And I'm going to need to think of a new base color also. hmm.. and i have absolutely no idea how to work around electronics, including soldering. this might be difficult

You can probably get off all the hardware and pickups with a screw driver and a wrench for the pots (pots are the things your knobs are connected to). Your knobs will either pull off, or they might have a set screw.

As for the paint, you might want to talk to MuddyTaco. He is an awesome airbrush artist and very creative.
