Pro repaint or have dings

Im considering repainting my ibanez jem it has some dings and chips and my question is should i leave it alone or get a professional repaint.
Whats the best for the value.?
Considering the paint job is as good as original or better.

I would leave it. IMO jems look fine beat up a bit with the classic neck pocket cracks and dings here and there.

Definitely leave it. A well played guitar is a thing of beauty.

We don't know if it's an LNG, a BSB, or even a Jem Jr.
