i dont think my local guitar store does. would i have to take everything apart myself?
I would imagine you just mask off the neck joint, the pickups, and bridge, take the strings off, and remove the knobs then mask the pots. should be fine after that.
I'm in the middle of redoing an Ibanez unknown model... Right now i'm sanding off the old paint job, then it's gonna get a matte or glossy black. Basically, just sand off the old finish and paint before you do anything, you'll thank yourself later.
I have actually heard of some car places painting guitars before.
how would i take the electronics out of a bass thats like a '51 style bass. when you take off the pickguard the body is underneath. dont wanna stuff nothin up
Try searching your yellow pages and even online for luthier shops that will do it. Otherwise all I can say is go to reranch.com if you want to do it yourself.
