RE: JS6 Refinish?

Thinking about refinishing my JS6 like a JS700 - Good/Bad/Other?

I think you should refinish your guitar however you like, it's a matter of personal taste not consensus.

Re: JS6 Refinish?

There were red JS6000s made so it’s not an unheard of idea.

My only issue for looks would be making sure the headstock matches.

I do wonder how the oil finish might take (or not take) a gloss varnish?

Re: JS6 Refinish?

I agree you should do what you want, but if you are asking me, leave a JS6 as is. You can sell it to me. I could use a third one.
