    I was wondering if there were any places thad do custom finishes, like pictures of your choice sprayed on your bass or something, a bit like this Custom Finish

    I live in the kent/east sussex area, does anyone know of any places near me that do this sort of thing?

    Airbrush artists do these. It's a lot different than a regular guitar finish. Then you clearcoat over it.

    Do you reckon it would be expensive to get one?

    Depends on the artist. If it's someone you know well, could be cheap. If it's someone looking to get their work exposed, could be cheap. But if they really just look at it as a job and not for exposure, it could cost ya a pretty penny.
