    I finally got a birth year strat, however it's black and I've always wanted Olympic white. What am I looking at $$$ to get the refinish done?

    I believe MJT gets $375 for a pure nitro relic'd finish, but I believe that is also based upon the body being bare or finished in nitro currently. If they have to remove Poly, it probably costs much more.

    The good news is that Ol White is not a difficult finish to do. $300-400 is a reasonable price range.

    If it is factory poly paint it can be sanded and painted right over the existing finish....but then the problem is finding Olympic white in poly!

    If the guitar is vintage collectible in factory black, I would think twice about refining it.....but hey its your guitar.
