It takes light to yellow the CV finish, which changes the appearance of the color underneath. Like the white basses looking cream, or the Blue Boys turning greenish.

dale or paul, have you done any white or cream finishes recently? and is that something that would cost more to do?

I have not had any requests for white or cream lately. Maybe Dale has...

I do not charge any more for white or cream. As a matter of fact, if a client wants a special color, I will provide it, at no extra charge.

I usually send the client a selection of color chips which I have done on maple, so they can see exactly the color they're getting. I've got lots of these covering standard Rick and custom colors, all numbered. If I don't have the color, I'll spray up a bunch to order, in varying densities and darknesses.

I spray up chips that are 4" X 5" in size or thereabouts, and then after they're dry, I number them and cut them in half on the table saw. Then I send one half to the customer, and keep the other.

Customer says, "I'd like number 4", and we know we're on the same page.

I've talked to a couple of Rick owners who swear that their white guitars/basses were never CVd at the factory. One is 32 years old and is still bright white...

Paul, I would like to see more photos of the '57 Combo 400, please. I cannot say enough about your quality work; the color on your Laramie-12 shows a lot of subtlety and depth. I can hardly wait for my turn to be thoroughly impressed.

Paul L.

I'll try to post some before the weekend.

The Laramie was already finished when I got it, although the neck was not set. So the part of it that I finished was the neck heel and the blending of the neck-to-body joint.

So I can't take credit for the finish work on the Laramie; it was a factory finish.

Thanks Paul, out of the many fine examples of your finish work on the Forum, leave it to me to give credit to the one you did not do--So let's give it up for the RIC factory folks.
