Like buses, we often have similar repairs arrive in the workshop at the same time.
As it happened we had a Fender Precision bass and a Fender Jazzmaster both in for headstock refinishes.
The P- Bass customer wanted a vintage logo on his, and the Jazzmaster owner wanted his new purchase to have a colour matched headstock, as the previous owner had wrecked the current one.
The first step is stripping down the hardware after removing the necks from the bodies. Then they can be sanded down, new custom decals were ordered in.
Both headstocks sprayed and left to cure before the lacquer can be flattened and polished at a later date!
Both headstocks refinished and all hardware back on, ready for the customers to collect!
