We offer a complete body-neck respray service using nitrocellulose finishes. When complete the finish is hard and tough. A full refinish can be a long process due to the labour needed in the preparation for paint and the curing time of the lacquer, so the average turnaround time is 3-4 weeks depending on the complexity project.
We pride ourselves on offering accurately-matched custom colours, specialising on the vintage guitar colours of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Here is a quick guide and price to a typical project like a refinish on a Stratocaster or Telecaster:
- Guitar dropped off in one piece
- Guitar stripped of all hardware and neck removed.
- Body sanded back to wood and repairs made to dents and screw holes where required
- Body premiere applied (involves additional sanding and coats)
- Body finish applied and polished (involves additional sanding and coats)
- All hardware cleaned including electrics, bridge, neck, frets and tuners etc
- Reassemble everything
- Complete Setup.
- Final testing.
Sanding / Natural Wood
Its not all about paint spraying. We offer a body sanding service too, which will remove the old finish and then we can oil / stain as required. The natural finish and look fantastic and lets face it wood is beautiful!
