I would doubt they'd do it on a guitar that's already finished, but I could be wrong? Brian? Matthew? The quickest way to find out would be to email info@larrivee.com

Hmmm, I was at a party once, and in the song circle was a builder who had a guitar she said "recently became a sunburst."  My recollection was the guitar had been damaged somehow and refinished with the 'burst, but I could be mistaken.  Look up Kathy Wingert and maybe ask her.  BTW, she sings and plays just as well as she builds.

Yes, Josh Luttrell in Austin Texas. He mastered finishing at Gibson, Collings and maybe other places but he has started his own strictly finishing business in Austin. There is also Addam Stark in Santa Cruz California who does finishes for many builders there. Both of those people are the best and specialists. I think refinishing an acoustic might be more labor than you realize. In most cases they remove the neck, entire bridge and the pickguard and break the guitar down then reassemble it. You're talking some serious cash. Better off ordering one from a dealer and getting a custom finish. But that would be a serious wait. Unless you bought one of the models that already come with burst. That's my take on the situation.

Probably be more sensible to buy one with a sunburst finish.

I do them too.   I don't take off the bridge etc, no real need though it would make it easier.  It's very time consuming and you have to take off most of the original finish.  Thus the price.  1000.00 to 1500.00 depending on the time factor.  Thus ording one done from the factory usually beats my price.  I thought Larrivee has an added charge not that far from mine.  At least you still get the warantee which is voided by an outsider doing it.

I do maybe one a year.

You'd be better off finding a sunburst guitar to buy and leaving yours alone.

Thanks for all the replys- I guess my sunburst will have to be on another box. I thought my L body would look cool w/ a burst.
