    that was very nicely said and well put\

    ah jeeze but now I can't help myself. can you also argue though that doing all this work to the guitar including adding black grain filler stuff will change the sound?

    who knows. I know I enjoy watching these vids

    I have a set of Gil Yaron PAFs that are just screaming at me to put them in something. But the two things I have are an SG 61 RI (limited w ABR bridge) which sounds PERFECT with the 57 classics and a Warren Haynes 335 which also sounds perfect. I"m having to tell myself to leave well enough alone!

    I think I saw something with Bonamassa (maybe) where he feels that if the guitar is good and he loves it then he just doesn't mess w it.

    Just as a side note. I'm not doing any of this to improve the sound of my guitar. My guitar sounded exactly the way I wanted it. The changes made are to make this guitar "mine" It's a work of art by a master craftsman. It sounds the way I want, now it's going to feel and look the way I want. Watching this guitar being "re-crafted" will make it a special guitar that I hope I own for many years. Anyway..... rich brown nut color for the back. Also note the neck stain is pre-faded as if it has been handled for years.

    Goldfinger! Florian writes"Here's the gold. Exactly the same mixture of 2 different bronze powders; from the same company Gibson was delivered in the 50ies:" That attention to detail appeals to me. Crazy? Maybe but look at that paint and that carve.

    Binding cleanly scraped, defines the top nicely. I'm still loving that carve. Such a lovely paint job I hate to touch it. But.....
