    So I've got this really very nice Glarry GTL T-style in the transparent yellow, and thinking it would look pretty spiffy with a body-matching headstock. No experience painting guitars, and Glarry doesn't exactly offer touch-up paint ;)
    I'm guessing the maple would finish differently than the soft body wood anyway. Has anyone perhaps actually already done this, or any advice for a noob like me? It only has pass the 10-foot test, as they say...

    Note to our non-English-native members: The thread title alludes to the phrase "making a silk purse from a sow's ear" - depending on your opinion of Glarry guitars -

    Take the body to your local Autozone, O'Reillys, or other auto parts store who sells Duplicolor Color Match spray paint. Pick out the yellow that looks close. The headstock is a long way from the body so a slight mismatch won't even be noticable.
    Buy the Color Basecoat and the Clearcoat.
