  1. I've just got my bass back from Dave, it's a Fender Elite Jazz and I've had it sprayed Olympic white nitro from it's original natural. So here is my experience with it.... I bought this bass from @andybassdoyle back in May after being on the search originally for a '75 RI which seem hard to come by. I love the black block on maple look. This bass was in my budget and I thought the modernisations of compound radius, active (although we'll come back to this), matte neck and the possibility of string through bridge were worth a try. After receiving the bass, it felt right and was a joy to play. But that preamp just wasn't doing it for me, so out it went (as well as the Gen 4 noiseless pick ups) and in went a set of Dimarzio Model J's and a VVT set up with the 4th knob being a capacitor switch. Lovely. Then after seeing @AndyTravis 's MM jazz respray, I thought about a spray job on mine. The body on my jazz was a bit plain, so a paint job would help it stand out and I've always liked the idea of a white nitro finish which will age nicely. I believe this model did come in white, but I couldn't see any for sale anywhere with a maple neck. So got in touch with David at the end of July and we went over what I had in mind and such. I stripped off all the hardware and sent it off 11/08. David kept me updated along the way while sanding and prepping and when it came to mixing the colours. And finally the finished bass: Everything fitted (extremely carefully) back together as it should, so happy days. I couldn't be happier with the job David did on it. He is such a nice guy to deal with, the price was very fair (IMO) and the turn around time good too. Over time it will mellow out to a more cream colour and will show wear and tear. So yeah, if you want something resprayed, David is your guy. And now my bass is exactly how I want it. Thanks.
