Last year, I bought my wife a Squier VM Jaguar short scale for her to learn bass on for a new acoustic trio project. She loves it, and we're having a great time. But her favorite color is purple, and her bass is red. So ... here goes a refinish project. I just bought a cheap used VM SS Jag from Ebay and am waiting for it to show up. In the meantime, I'm reading the Rattlecan thread, the Reranch forum, and looking around for materials. I'm trying to decide between the ReRanch Crown Royal Purple and a Testor's automotive purple that's available locally, albeit in tiny cans. Cost will probably be about the same, and I've heard and seen good things about both sources. Her birthday is in June, so that's the target date for completion. Currently not planning to strip the poly finish, but to just scuff sand and start with primer (either ReRanch or BINS white shellac). Will update this with progress and pics as it develops.
