I have a 2001 US Fender Jazz Deluxe 4 that I picked from about twenty. It sounds fabulous with a nice rich warm tone and good overall dynamics. But I truly dislike its appearance. It is a classic sunburst with white pickguard and a perfectly virginal maple neck and matching light maple fretboard. The neck is so new and light that it looks like new pine lumber from a hardware store. I'm going to a tortoise pickguard. That's the easy part. I'd like to know if it is possible to refinish the neck so it doesn't look so spankin' new without disrupting the tone of the instrument. Can I refinish the neck and fretboard to at least to a yellower more vintage color? I'm thinking that the fretboard, with its dot inlays, may pose the truest challenge. I'm not likely to do this work myself. Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
