Chicago area Members??? NW Indiana too......

Silly Q, but does ANYBODY still paint guitars in our area???? It seems every shop I've ever used in the past has quit spraying. Especially Nitro-cell.

Re: Chicago area Members??? NW Indiana too......

Third Coast guitars out of Chicago is damn good. Chris did some work for my buddy's 40th ann. Strat which is a Swamp Ash with dual color burst, they matched it perfectly, he dropped the guitar from a wall hanger 6' up in the air, it too a chip out of the body about 1.5", Chris replaced the wood (had the chunk still) and color matched the piece.

If you're looking for a straight color shoot with some air brushing, there is a local guy:

Rick, he did my RG-550 refin.

I'm near Orland Park, so PM me if you want more info on Rick.

Re: Chicago area Members??? NW Indiana too......

Third coast is pretty expensive though...... looks to be about $600 per guitar, and I have 6 of them that need painting......... I'd rather buy a VWH with that much $$$....lol
