spraying color onto new neck

Post by James Gates »

I am building a solid body guitar with a funky theme, meaning it does not have to be pristine. I have a neck which I assume has a poly finish on it and I want to change the color, right now it is clear finished maple, but wonder if I can just get a few cans of paint and paint it a different color? What kind of prep do I need? I know that I can take a heat gun and strip it down to bare wood, but seem to me that maybe get away with sanding it to 200 grit and just spray painting light coats till the color is acheived, Your opine?
