I have a Washburn dime I would like refinished. Any possible way to have it sent someplace to do so?

As you most likely know, just before his passing, Dime changed his underwriting from Washburn to Dean. top paper service So on the off chance that you need a fresh out of the box new guitar you may need to run with a Dean.

No, "refinish the guitar I already own" is not anything like "buy a new guitar."  ::)

FWIW, the Washburn Dimes are far superior to the ever-increasing plethora of "Dean" "Dimes" foisted off by Darrell's estate. (It's not the same company, & almost all the post-death "Dimes" were never actually approved by Darrell, QED.)

Refinishing a guitar is NOT easy nor cheap. It is WORK to tear a finish down to wood, then to redo the multiple rounds of filler & sealer, then color coats, then anything like a burst, then topcoat, then clearcoat.

I know classic guitars. An old Strat with most of the finish gone down to wood is worth at least as much as the same Strat with a $1,000 professional repaint.
