    I'm with @blackspider57 - what on earth did someone use to molest that truss rod access hole?

    Pass!

    I have some of those necks, I can paint one and send it to you. Getting decals is on you though.

    This is a great example of when to take your guitar to a tech or at least someone with more experience than you. My Dad was an engineer and he always said, “Don’t force it!”

    That'd be great! What's the cost?

    Consider it a gift. I need to know what color, if you find a match you like, tell me the name of it.

    Thank you very much sir! Sherwin Williams Ultimate blue is what the color matcher says it is. I appreciate it, I guess its warranted for having to deal with bass boy huh? haha

    In my opinion that's firewood. I could never trust it.

    I went to Sherwin Williams and got Ultimate Blue made up. Got the headstock sanded, primed, and first coat of UB on it. Tomorrow will get the 2nd coat and clear coat. The tuners on this headstock were the 2 pin type and smaller diameter holes.

    Thank you sir! Im in need of good news today, your generosity helps. Since everyone that sees this will no doubt notice the vagueness, we decided we had to put our dog down today. Saturday is the day. She's 21, been with us since she was 3.

    I am so sorry to hear that. It is devastating. Dogs are such better people than people most times. I have 6,
    Recovery takes a while, but you will get thru it.

    I don't like painted head stocks at all. I like my Strats pretty standard. I could get use to one if I had to but not with a hack job like that truss rod.

    Well, it is not factory finish, but considering I had to use a brush to apply it, I think it turned out OK..I hope you like it.
    I went to Sherwin Williams and they made up Ultimate Blue. Looks a bit different than the guitar.

    Sometimes base coats change the color ? a few white bases coats may have got you closer ? it's not bad ?

    That's really sad news, sorry to hear that! I understand how you feel, dogs are so fantastic! At least she must have had a very full, long and happy life with you. Try to think about that (although I know it's not easy...).
