Sometimes we are asked to take a brand new Fender or Gibson and make it look like an old original. Case in point is this baritone jaguar owned by guitarist extrordinaire Bill Frisell. It had a thick poly sunburst finish, and although it’s a cool guitar, it wasn’t much in the vibe department. Bill and I agreed that it would be cool to do it up as an aged Sonic blue Bass VI with matching headstock. Lacquer checking,wearthrough to primer, aged hardware…this guitar has some serious vibe now!
