    Greetings,
    I was wondering if any of you would know of some one that could refinish a bass in Canada. I had wanted to have a go at it myself over the winter but I've got a couple of kids that would not be able to handle the fumes.
    The body of the bass is swamp ash in a natural finish and the neck is maple. I'd like to have the body and headstock refinished in clear blue. Thanks for any help.

    I don't know any in Canada, but I think Roxy Guitar Finish is in Wisconsin or Minnesota... That's pretty close, depending on where YOU are.

    Yep, big country here. . .
    If you are out on the wet coast, try Paul Iverson over at Calder Music in North Van.

    Email George from Fbass ---> http://www.fbass.com/ and ask for Mike's number. He's former worker of Fbass has his own Shop in Hamilton now - I think it's called The Peg. Mike will od a brilliant job for you and no waiting period like all the local Toronto shops. He also does a killer set up and charges les money then any of the local guys. I might go up there for a set up as well - next month or so.

    Cheers

    Greetings,
    Thanks for the heads up. Hamilton is a bit closer to where I am.

    Bill Calder retired and sold the place a while back, it's Tom Lee Music in North Van now. Paul's still there in the basement doing great work though.
