So basically my question is, if I could refinish by bass and if so, well, how! It's seethrough grey/industrial green-ish, but I'd rather had it be white see-through (like Gibson's cherry red finish, but then white). Oh I'll just slam in some pics.







I've repainted a guitar before, so I'm familiar with sanding it down and adding paint and lacquer (even though the lacquer job wasn't a 100% sucuecss, there were soms clogs).

Anyway I only want to do the top; the pearl layer on the side won't need changing ofcourse, and beneath that is a nice dark see-through black. So it's just the top. Anything to get me started?

I'd leave it as is. I think it looks pretty cool.

Firstly i'd take a picture from a few angles, take it into PS or i may do it for you and change the colour of the top to white and see what it look's like, then only if your 100% sure about it, i'd start to sand off the top, but very lightly if the top is a veneer you might sand through it, and that wont look good.

After that i'd just stain it and then clear coat it and hope for the best

Why do you want to refinish it in the first place? I think it looks beautiful!

I'm not digging the colour. I'm not into metal much and I want a softer/more stylish colour.

I'm digging this color, but if you wanna change it, maybe add slightly more metallic accents to it? Perhaps around the knobs.


But I don't want more metallic! I want it to be softer

Edit: I'm going to PM about the PS ^^
