    I have nothing to disclose at this time.
    I'm looking for some depth & texture.
    Who does sandblasting that we know ?

    I have a natural ash Fender P body I'd like to get done.

    I plan on refinishing with a satin finish.

    sandblasting is likely too destructive, options like walnut shell may give the texture desired

    I've done it a bunch of times.

    I use Black Beauty abrasive, and it comes out great.

    I would ask your local luthiers and see who does it on a regular basis.

    Otherwise, you would have to PM a luthier on the forums, then send your body out for blasting.
