Step 4: The problems.

The black diagonals had looked great, and the gold paint looked wonderful while it dried, so it was heart-breaking when we peeled off the masking tape and it lifted lumps of black off with it, and the gold took up every fingerprint and refused to be wiped clean...

We had, of course, failed to sand the guitar properly in the first place, and the gold could probably have done with a full twenty-four hours to dry, rather than the couple we gave it.

Conker wanted to play the guitar while we had a re-think, and that was when we discovered the mistake with the strings...

Sorry, we didn't take photos of the mess...
