Jose Arana e-mailed this question:  What kind of primer do you recomend using before painting on the guitar?”

Jose, thanks for your question – I use Krylon or Kiltz spray can primer on guitars and just about anything else.  It’s quick & easy.  You can find both of these primers in any hardware store.
