    Hay guys & gals,

    just asked Svee a question and I thought I'd put it out there...

    I'm painting a Guitar (Ibanez G10 I think) anyway it's been sitting around for a while and I need some cash quick as I tried to help someone out and it turned around and bit me, now I owe a ton of cash so I thought I'd paint this Guitar and sell it on Trade-me (like E-bay over here) need a theme that will be popular and will create a bidding war... any ideas out there?
    Cheers Lou.

    Since you need money ... make "money" the theme. Money from all over the world. Maybe have some on fire. Everybody likes money! I know i do, lol! Just a thought.

    How bout this idea, like a mirror within a mirror, paint a guitar within the guitar, or even better, paint 4-5 guitars, each one getting smaller each time and within the previous one, not something I can remember seeing done on a guitar and might look pretty cool, can't say it'd create a bidding war or be easy to do though :)..Photoshopped up the idea quickly, can certainly say it'd be different LOL :)...

    Green/blue chameleon paint (or orange/red flip) with a water droplet effect over the top. Trouble is an Ibanez G10 is down the budget end of guitars so you wont get a lot of cash for it mate. Pinups normally go down well too, make it look like the side of a plane with panels and rivets and add an old school pinup behind the bridge. Or do what i did with my G10...
