I have a 500 that, when I bought it, was all original but fire damage in that the original paint had been seared off of much of the body, which, as it turns out, was in otherwise very good condition (samll crack right where these guitars usually begin to succumb to stress). I had a new pickguard made that is identical to the original and I had a new pain job applied, same color (black) that, though undertaken by a skilled luthier, is just adequate (playing the instrument out has also led to some buckle rash and a chip here and there).

I also had Kevin at Electrical Guitars make me some hotter single coil PUs. The guitar can easily be refitted with the originals. It sounds like the dick and the balls.

How much of a devaluation results from the new paint job?

i wouldnt have thought a repaint on a 500 would do anything to bring the price down. (unless your comparing it to a mint condition, all original 500 and no your average, cracked, worn 500). The 500 is special (to players) because of the neck and pick ups.
(to ranxerox) are those pick ups from kevin the p-90s based on the original 500 pick ups. i Have a set of these on my guitar and they are as hot as hell and bite like a mad dog.

I don't want to sell just now. I was simply wondering as I had been told that having the paint redone was a huge error.

Yes, Kevin made me a set of p-90 type PUs and they are wound super hot.
