    I have bass body that needs to be re-finished. I would like to have a nice green translucent finish. Does anyone know where I can get this done w/ quality.
    Any help would be appreciated.
  2. What I would do, and have done, is call local privately owner auto body or bike shops that do custom painting. Ask them if there was any time that you could have them spray it with color/clear coat, and how much it woudl cost you? All I did before hand was sand the body and get it all primed up for them. You can always ask them what they need you to do. I hope this helps.

    I had a work done by Pat Wilkins and it came out beautiful. He is the man. He's done work Tom Anderson, PRS, Sadowsky, Shecter, etc, etc. He's super easy to deal with. Tops in the business and that's a quote from guys like Terry McIntuff, Sadowsky, etc. http://www.wilkinsguitars.com/
