How to sunburst a guitar?

I really want to paint my guitar sunburst. I just want to know what to get and mainly how to do it. If you have any thing about that please tell me. And welp have a good day. :)

A sunburst finish can be achieved by several methods. The oldest is the "rubbed" sunburst method, most modern guitars get the effect by careful applications of the paint/laquer and masking off the lighter areas. Whichever way the job is done, several coats of clear laquer are applied over the sunburst to level off the finish.

Here's why you shouldn't do it.

Firstly, if this is an acoustic guitar it will give it a very brittle tone unless you strip off all the finish and start from the bare wood. Then you have to learn about surface wood fillers before you learn about how to spray paint.

Secondly, it takes a long time. If you don't want the coats of laquer to bleed into each other, you have to work very slowly.

Factory guitars get heated and treated to accelerate the hardening of each light spraying.

Do this at home, and you have to do a little each day and leave each coat alone to set up. No joking, if you want a finish like the factory it takes about 6 weeks to respray a guitar, and then you need about another month of hardening before you can do the final polish job.

It don't make the guitar play better or sound better. At the end of the day, unless you are very good at the job it will devalue the guitar - so when you trade it in for that sunburst guitar you really really want, you have to put more money into the deal to get it.

Don't think about it. Buy some cheapo guitar to mess up and mess around with for practicing the techniques if you must teach yourself how to do it..
