    Hello,

    Is there a good place where I can send my bass to get it refinished?

    I suppose I'm looking for a recommendation for a place where they have a good reputation for their work and are reasonable in price.

    The body I want to refinish is made of Basswood and I would like to refinish it in Olympic White, using the type of paint that turns creamy as it ages, which I'm not sure what type of paint that is. :help:

    Thanks.

    Roxy Guitar Finish in Tacoma, WA will do this for you. Considering the time invested, I think their pricing is quite reasonable

    All the best,

    Pat Wilkins in the Los Angeles area. He did a few basses for me and is THE BEST. He does, Sadowsky's finishes and many others...

    Thanks for the replies. I just checked out a few of those names you guys mentioned, and they all look like definite possibilities.

    Thanks for the help.
