    BadMojo Vintage Makeovers specializes in guitar finishing, refinishing and upgrades with a focus on guitar finishes from the 50's and 60's. All guitars are carefully stripped and painstakingly refinished with 100% non-plasticized nitrocellulose lacquer. We will also weather check and lightly distress finishes at customer's request.

    At BadMojo we take a natural and organic approach to aging guitars. We do not want your guitar to look unrealistic and over cooked. We pride ourselves on our top quality work, attention to detail and outstanding customer service. Our goal is to make your guitar look and feel like a true vintage instrument and make you happy during the process.

    We have competitive pricing as well as discounts for return clients, referrals and multiple pieces.

    Send us your Gibson, MIM, MIJ, MIA Fender or Partscaster and we will make it the classic guitar you always wanted.


    Not in the US? No problem! We serve clients world wide.

    Hi, we are working on a few right now and should have them for you in a week or two. We have been unable to do them due to the lack of a ‘Les Paul’ logo silk screen and serial number stamp. We recently acquired both silkscreen and SN stamp so, we are in business! The silkscreen and SN stamp are the exact same font, size and typeface as was use on the original 1958-1960 bursts. In addition to that, we are setting up an industrial UV light system to fade the hand mixed aniline dyes just like the original bursts.

    If you want the look and feel of an original burst without forking out a ton of cash, BadMojo Vintage Makeovers is your place.

    We will refinish all Les Pauls, not just historic Reissues. You will get top quality work at a great price.

    Any questions please feel free to contact me.

    Hi Andy,
    Don't want to be the guy who sticks his head in the restaurant kitchen to ask the chef for a recipe, but just curious if you have experience using muriatic acid in the aging of guitars.

    Hi Duane,

    Yes, I have used that method to age metal parts. Its pretty dangerous. You don’t want to get splashed with that stuff.

    UV Curing and Fading Lights Bump

    I got it set up over the weekend. This should help with turnaround time immensely.

    Here are the results after only a few hours. Keep in mind, the dye is a lightfast dye. This should work much better on hand mixed aniline dye.

    Just in time for Christmas!

    Dan from NJ wanted his 12 year old son to have a special Christmas gift. He requested a vintage car color that had a lot of sentimental value. I did a total refinish with logo replacement. It will be a total surprise. His son has no clue he‘s getting it.

    Dan was very pleased with the high quality finish. He was all smiles and said he couldn’t wait for his son to see it! This job is very rewarding. I really enjoy the opportunity to meet with my clients.
