Soloist alder body using automotive urethane paints in a can. The photo below shows the body after the clear coats have been applied. Next, I'll be fine sanding and buffing, then assembling...

After final sanding and buffing. Orange peel be gone! I'll be posting a topic in the Soloist Gallery when I'm done assembling. Thanks for your comments...

Thanks. I originally wanted to use the trans-am firebird decal but I wanted something modern instead. I found this phoenix on

Pretty cool, I'm a big Trans Am Freak....Love it...Needs 6.6 on it somewhere..... :icon_thumright:

Although I must say, you should have waited to put the decal on, cause you got some serious orange peel going on there. definitely in need of a color sanding to smooth things out.... :dontknow:
It's not a decal (sorry to confuse). I had a stencil made of a phoenix I downloaded online. Check out my assembled guitar in the Soloist projects section. Or go to my website:

Thanks for your compliments and feedback...
