Post by donnyII » Thu Nov 09, 2006 1:23 pm

What is the best way to go about getting a nitro finish on a jazzmaster? do you guys know of any good places to send it out to?  iI could do it my self but i dont know if i trust my self enough to make it look killer.

Lots of people have said good things about Mark Jenny, particularly his relics (if you're into that).

Curtis Novak is another name that pops up often, particularly when vintage-correct finishing is needed - his site has some excellent photos of Fender colors, including some custom colors that are hard to describe to someone who doesn't do this kind of stuff all the time (believe me, I've tried!):

And you can always give it a go yourself:
