    I am thinking about buying a JP6 that has a divot/blem on the top

    Does EBMM perform repairs like this? Like if I paid for the divot to be repaired?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not really. You'd have to send the whole body in to be refinished, at significant cost.

    I made an offer on that one, but was declined. It's a great price for a fully loaded JP6, but I know that scar would bug me. You can get a pro refinish in the neighborhood of $300 plus shipping (I did a little shopping around as I thought about it), but I don't know if they'd be able to exactly match the original color, which is a problem with the matching headstock.

    Any links or pictures? What finish is it?

    In general, finishes are hard to repair, even if they are nitro.

    It was El Dorado Gold. It's since sold. Not sure if Tom popped on it or not, but it was gone about 15-20 minutes after I posted, about a half-hour or so after my offer was rejected. Seller was asking $1075 for it, so I knew it wouldn't hang around long. Had it not been for the scar, I would have bought it within an hour of him posting. It had a pretty good scrape at the top of the forearm contour with a couple of small pieces of wood missing, and it had been inexpertly "repaired" with what looked like possibly gold model paint that didn't match at all then sanded back.

    I know EBMM uses the Kustom Shop line of paints and I’m pretty sure they have Eldorado gold as one of their standard colors. I think “Light Gold Firemist” is the right color. But there would still be significant cost to adopt the whole paint system(primer, base coat, clear coat, etc.) just to paint a one-off guitar. Even using all the right paints, I think it would be hard to match the headstock.

    I had a local company (http://atomicguitarworks.com/ ) in Phoenix fix a bad ding on my Petrucci and I was really impressed with how it came out. You really wouldn't know unless I told you the repair. Those basswood bodies are notoriously soft and it's not hard to put a pretty big divot in them.
