LGM Custom Work


Hi everyone, just a couple questions...
LGM charges USD$225 for finishing a guitar solid color. Does this include stripping the body of the factory finish? Or do I have to do that, or he charges more for it? Also, does this price include refinishing the headstock, and putting the ibanez logo back on? Any answers appreciated.

I think that is just finish. That is low, too. I can't even source it out locally for that price. Your best answer would be from the man himself, though

Usually i would, but i keep asking you guys for quotes for different ideas and i never went ahead with anything yet, and i feel as though i am wasting your time, i know your both very busy. Im sure about what i want to do this time though, so I figured i should just get a rough idea on this site.

Given the amount of time required to properly strip a finish down to the wood (or at least to the sealer), i would assume that no, $225 doesn't include stripping. Even at those prices, Jeremy's barely paying himself a living wage.

Re: LGM Custom Work


Stripping to wood is a poor poor poor idea. You cannot get a better prepped surface than the factory paint. The $225 I charge includes me prepping the body. If there are many chips or something I might charge a little extra, but minor inclusions and defects are included in the prep. Taking a body to wood (unless you want a transparent finish) allows moisture, oils, grease, dirt etc to get into the wood. It also means doing the identical process that ibanez does to reseal the wood again. Pointless........

Matching headstock with new logo is $60 extra since you asked on that one as well.
Darren is right though, even at those prices, I make Mcdonalds wages on paint, the cost of GOOD paint is very high. I pay $380canadian for a gallon of clear, quart of hardener, and a quart of reducer, so basically a gallon and a half
