I mean an accurate goldtop refinish, or a righteous 59 'burst finish, or a 3-colour strat sunburst? For example, say you found a 62 strat with house paint on it (no, i didn't), where do you go for the perfect refin, or even a little relicing?

For the goldtop or burst finish, I'd say ship it across the border.

www.historicmakeovers.com

esp the goldtop, there's some pix on there showing the color a real goldtop should be compared to the gold that's used now.

Mike Spicer was responsible for the finish on this '59 Replica



Graham - didn't know that the Peghead is closed. Details? Do you know what happened to Jason?

Thanks,

dj

Mike is the best, I still work out of that building as well but on the PA side.

Jason,

Mike is the best, I don't think I've ever seen anyone else in any business that has the drive to do things right the way he does. I still work out of that building as well but on the PA side.

Jason, if you are refering to the same Jason I am thinking of, works out of his home now and still makes pickups for George's Basses.
