    Doing a little research to see how hard doing a refinish on a T-Bird would be. Used the search on here but not much popped up on T-Birds. If anyone's done it I'd love some insight. Been on the Reranch site and checked out as much as I could. Doesn't look too easy but I've got time and paitence and not a lot invested in the bass. It's a late 90's vintage sunburst with a headstock repair. Thanks for your time!

    I grow organic carrots and they are not for sale
    A t-bird should be just as easy to refinish as a Fender bass.

    Well I'm determined to give it a whirl. I figure if I screw it up it won't be any harder for a pro to redo it for me. I'm most concerned about the neck and trim around the front of the headstock since it's all one color.
