    New Paint job - Shop v.s. DIY

    $270 isn't bad for a refinish. By purchasing an "airbrush" and some paint does not guarantee that it will come out like the factory painted it. I've seen many of guitars come through my shop that were painted by hand and most didn't turn out that well (drips, orange peel, overspray, etc.)...

    Any reason not to buy this partscaster Jaguar on Reverb?

    I don’t think it’s a bad price. I think if was priced $650 - $700 would be better or if it’s me with a case. Nice looking guitar.

    Jaguar Pickguard preference?

    I recently purchased a Squier Jazzmaster and was deciding what Pickguard looks better? Tortoise shell for the classic look or white/mint for that Marr look.

    Is the Gibson custom shop worth it over a standard?

    Yes, I have both and I think that the Custom Shop is better all the way around. Of course, I bought my CS used which was cheaper that a new Standard model.

    Custom/Personalized Truss Rod Covers - Let's see them!

    I won this guitar in a raffle, and donated it to my friend's mom who played the guitars at nursing and assisted living centers. When my friend's mom passed away the guitar was given back to me. In honor of my friend's mom I installed a custom truss rod cover featuring her wonderful name.

    Is the honeymoon over for the Fender Acoustasonic?

    My friend who plays live purchased one and he loves it. He said it’s light weight is great on his shoulders plus he doesn’t have to lug 2 guitars to a gig. I heard him playing it live and it sounded great. For me as a home player I prefer my acoustic and electric.
