I need to make up my mind on a color for an AVRI '62 fender jazzmaster refin. with a white guard. It needs to be a custom color and I'd like it to be accurate. Were there any CARs in '62?

A) Lake Placid Blue

B) Sonic Blue

C) Candy Apple Red (I know this didn't come out until '63/'64 but I like it.)

Tinted clear? Relic'd?

I voted Sonic Blue.
Simple, easy, and a classic.

Tinted Sonic Blue would be cool IMHO.

I just did a tinted Sonic (65 Duo Sonic) and it turned out well. It wasn't accurate, but what better color than one with the same name?

and the winner is.....................sonic blue!!!!

very cool, I guess I just need:

1 can ss
1 can white primer
1 can sonic blue
2 cans clear

do I need a 2nd can of blue? I want to do a thin finish.

Anyone have sonic blue pics? I'm thinking of going with a gold pickguard.

you shouldn't need more than one can of SB. (technically you shouldn't need more that 1/4 - 1/2 can)

Junior, not to pull any sales from Bill, but if you buy a quart of Deft sanding sealer and brush it on you will be happy. Home Depot or Lowes/
The cans don't hold much and you'll run out.
The purpose of the S&S is to seal the wood and create a level foundation for your primer/ paint.
Get a good brush and brush it on it self levels to an extent and is easy to sand. Block sand the next day and wipe it down with Naphtha.
Paint another coat on, let dry, block sand and you should be good to go.
A quart is enough for many guitars.

The ReRanch primer is VERY good.
Be careful when sanding it though is it builds thick and is easy to change contours slightly.
Look at the body under very good lighting when sanding. Wink

Also what kind of wood is it?
If it is ash you will need to grain fill it.
i use Bartleys and IMO it is the bees knees. Very Happy

What is an AVRI?

thanks structo. it's alder. AVRI stands for american vintage reissue. I have a couple options and one of them is to use one of the reissue bodies.

I'll use the deft ss, Bill's primer, sonic, and 2 cans clear

That's Nels Cline. You can wiki him to check it.

I'm going with a gold pickguard too.

thanks
