    I'm considering getting my Stingray 5 refinished in either a metallic or flake finish. Removing and reinstalling the hardware and such isn't a problem but I would almost prefer to send the loaded body and have the shop do everything.

    Pat Wilkins and Marty Bell immediately come to mind. Are there any others I should look at? I would love to see some pics as well.

  3. I subscribe to Brubaker bass guitars on Facebook just so I can drool over his refinishing projects.

    Thanks @bholder. I am thinking of something along the lines of a light blue metallic or similar. @JIO does some awesome work gold leaf isn't quite what I'm looking for.
