it's pretty easy actually (i've done this before). If you are going to paint it just a solid color (ie. red, blue, etc) then its easy but if you are going to add some sort of design then it might be hard.
1st - take everything off. Take the pickguard, knobs, strings, and pick-ups. And if possible, take off the bridges.
2nd - tape everything up. the borders of the neck, the bridge, and maybe the pick-ups
3rd - paint. try not to go cheap on paint. If you buy cheap paint, it might crack or fade away easily
4th - enjoy your freshly painted guitar. wait about a day before putting things back on

Good Luck
