Introduction: Quick Eraseable Guitar Art

In this, my first instructable I will show you how to quickly and easily draw on your guitar.****DISCLAIMER****

****I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT YOUR GUITAR INFLICTS IF YOU DON'T DO THIS RIGHT****

This only works if you have a gloss finish on your guitar.
also don't do this to acoustic guitars, i don't know if it will come off.

Step 1: Go for It

All you need to do is draw any design on your guitar with the DRY-ERASE marker. don't use a permanent marker like a sharpie. It won't come off.

You can use this if your like a professional musician for gigs and such things or if you want to freak out your parents into thinking you drew all over your guitar.

To get it off just use your finger or a dry-erase board's eraser.

Do be careful: if you guitar is a little bit road worn (my old squier is) the body will be too rough and it won't come off. I didn't try it, but I know it will (I used to draw on my desk like that, but I never managed to get it off the rough parts)

Use different color marker......or wash of paint/spray paint.

author
LoneWolf (author)acidbass2010-03-31

That's why you could get the paint that comes off.

acidbass (author)LoneWolf2010-03-31

Nice! you could manufacture dry-erase pickguards! I cant do it... two of my guitars have wood finishes, and the other is not even glossy...

author
peach_fart (author)2008-12-30

i cant do this because my guitar has a gloss finish but its black. no pickguard either, so i cant draw on it.

author
Joanassie (author)peach_fart2009-06-04

Perhaps you could use a brightly-coloured marker (there are many colours available) on the body that should be glossy? The pickguard isn't the best spot to do this as seen in an above post.

author

I have no pickguard, and you mean silver or white? I've seen silver sharpies meant to write on black surfaces.

I did this on the plastic pick guard of my Marlin strat clone, but after leaving it on for a long time it had slightly stained the plastic when I wiped it off. If you do this I suggest not leaving the writing on there for a long time. (If it does stain, a little alcohol would probably clean it up ok)

Yes, but I never said anything about drawing on a pickguard only on the body of a gloss finish guitar.

If you are unsure about drawing on your guitar, then don't take the chance and don't do it.

It also is a great prank for a friends guitar. Make sure it is a glossy finish though.

If you have a bulletproof finish like the Ibanez you can do this with sharpies and take it off later with goo-gone. Then it won't rub off when you wipe your arm against it.

That a Tom Delonge model, or a Squier Bullet Deluxe?

author
Farewell88s (author)MattWasser2008-07-25

its a Squier, something. I'm saving up for a bettr guitar though

author
Farewell88s (author)2008-07-19

yeah sorry i forgot to mention that

Have to agree with Gypsyman, this doesn't work for all guitars.

author
Gypsyman (author)2008-07-18

just a reminder that you should not attempt this if you do not have a gloss finish like shown in this picture.
