Refinishing/staining a bass?

Recommended Posts

So I have this natural stained bass (left), it looks ok, but i'd love it to look like this stained finish (right).

Does anyone know a company capable of refinishing and or staining to do this for me?

Thanks in advance 😀

Personally I'd forget about staining it.

Problem is, stain needs to soak into bare wood. To do that every bit of the existing finish / sealer has to be removed, otherwise you end up with a patchy / spotty finish where the stain has failed to penetrate in some areas. Ask me how I know that ....

If you really need to change the colour, a respray over the top is probably the only realistic solution.

Yeah I thought I;'d deleted this post though as I thought it should be in the repair/technical section instead...

Yes, a full fat usa peavey cirrus....stunning!!!....please don't touch it.

I know what you mean, its gorgeous, but I've always wanted the other finish and with Peavey Custom Shop closed, and the only Cirrus production now being the Indonesian ones I have no option, even a guy at Peavey suggested finding a local luthier to sort it.

I can do this, but for now, unfortunately I don't do gloss finishes... Can't correctly varnish anything without a good tempered room and with an antidust system... :( But stain ok, refin too :)
