    How hard would it be to make one?
     
  2. No harder than any other burst finish. What color with silver were you thinking about?

    Black, like one of those Epi Thunderbird's.
     
  4. White with black around the edges? Shouldn't be too hard. I'd probably go to reranch.com and buy some of their spray paint. They also have good directions over there about how to do different finishes.

    Holy crap, that looks sweet!

    Does anyone have a step by step on how to do that?

    It would be my first refinishing.

    You would think John Deacon would know these things, geez.

    Im sure there are guides. As Eaglemoon said, check out ReRanch, those are some smart painters.

    Yeah i know, ive been out of the loop since I refinished my P bass about 20 years ago, I think it was. But this looks a bit more complicated.
