Guitar refinishing can be the most exciting upgrade you can have done to your guitar.
There are lots of reasons to change the colour or look of a guitar, from simply wanting it a different colour, to restoring it to its former glory. Whatever the reason, it’s always a good one!
Whether you’re looking to replicate a finish you’ve seen, need some major repair work done or have something new in mind, get in touch and let’s talk about how to make your guitar as it should be.
You can also ask about having a tribute or artistic finish on your guitar. Finishes don’t have to be limited to traditional solid colours or bursts.
I can also finish kit guitars or work with guitar builders looking to offer something different to their customers.
A few things to bear in mind!
The most important part of guitar refinishing is preparation (you could say how you finish is about how you start! ). Any surface that is going to be painted needs to be prepared properly to make sure the finish adheres properly and looks as smooth as possible. Paint won’t cover any sins! This could mean filling, grain filling and most definitely lots of sanding. So if you have an old beater that you want to look new again, remember that it may take more time to get it ready to paint.
