SIMS SPRAY SHOP - COLOUR TYPES

SpecialiTY Colours


 

metal flake

Ever-popular metal flake finishes are the ultimate attention grabber, this is a great look to really make your guitar visually pop. We mostly use old-school jumbo sized flake, which we stock in many different colours. This can be sprayed on as sparse or dense as you would like, to achieve different levels of visual intensity.


Metallic

Similar in essence to the metal flake finish but with much finer flakes, these finishes have a solid appearance but with added sparkle.


Pearls

Similar to the metallic finishes but more subtle, Pearl finishes have a much lighter pearlescent look and give a soft glow rather than a sparkle. Pearls also work very well with satin finishes because they provide a soft & smooth yet vibrant appearance (more info on satin finishes).


Chameleon & flip colours

These are a modern day metallic which redirect light waves back in such a way to reflect different colours at different angles. These work particularly well on guitars with lots of shapes as the curves help to accentuate the colour changes.

 

To see finishes that extend beyond spray work, such as mirror ball and fully light up guitars please see our custom material finishes.


BEFORE YOU CONTINUE...

When enquiring about our Spray Shop services there are a few options to think about that may not have crossed your mind. These will alter the price of your quote based on the time and resources required.

  • Do you want the headstock, neck and/or pickguard painted too?

  • You can take the guitar apart and send it unloaded which will save you money as it saves us time.

  • We can strip the old lacquer for you in preparation for the respray or you can strip it yourself before sending to us. However, please bare in mind that if this is not done professionally that we will only be able to half the stripping charge due to the preparation needed to achieve a the factory style professional finish that we always aim to deliver.

  • Having your guitar or bass refinished can also be the perfect opportunity to have other custom work or alterations made such as pickup swapouts, hardware changes, neck profile, body shape recontouring, routing etc. If this is what you desire then we can also provide the new components if necessary or you can send them, along with your instrument for us to fit. This could save you money and many complications in the long run!
