Re: JS6000 Project.......

I couldn't paint it. As you can see from this thread I debated it, but in the end this guitar is too unique. It has to be original. I told him to leave the marks (not from the routes) but from being played. It adds personality!

Re: JS6000 Project.......

I think it was a brave decision to keep the oil finish, but battle scars are cool, so no complaints from me

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Uncle Jay I made sure I had everything before I dropped it off. It's pretty bad it's taken me this long. I had asked Frank Falbo previously to do the restore work, but I never sent him the guitar. That was all on me though as I kept spending money on other things (guitars who am I kidding) and kept pushing it to the side. Shame on me because Frank was probably like does this dude want me to do the guitar or what! I still love you Frank, but in the end I decided to just keep it local and save myself some money....however feel free anytime to sell me one of those awesome Radius guitars!!

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Been lurking/following this thread....badass that it's officially in the works! In the meantime, at least you can be sure that your parts-needed list will be taken care of before the shop finishes up. Wouldnt be the first time that I've stared at various projects for a month or so while the finish cured, then "assembly-day" finally arrives & I realized I overlooked a mundane; yet crucial part like neck screws or bridge studs haha!

Hope everything works out great, & lookin forward to checking out the updates!

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Ok first off be sure your sitting down before you read this post. I don't want anyone to fall over and have a heart ready? I dropped off the JS6000 today to have it restored. YES you read that right the JS6000 is IN the shop!!! Words cannot describe how happy and excited I am. Friend doing the work said it will be at least 2 weeks before he can start, but that's ok. Rest assured when he does I will definitely post plenty of progress pics!

Jimmy my plans is to have some heavy flake added to the finish. For the life of me I'm determined to have a sparkle guitar it's just I can never find anything I like or fits my style i.e. the RG570 is a no go cause my hands are too small!

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Got it! Thx the way I got the tuners. The bridge is due to arrive at my father in law house today. From there I'll have to wait untilt the end of the month before he can send it to me here since he is on vacation. Gathered up all the parts and realized I don't have a set of the orginal knobs. Oh well no rush since I'm waiting on the bridge. As soon as I get that in the mail it's just a matter of finding someone to do the work. Still up in the air about having it finished.

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Check your PM Scott.

It was a friends' deal so probably not realistic. I think it would've been over $500 for the Eddie stripes if I just went and hired someone.

Definitely the way to go if you want to paint!
If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay to have it refinished?
