He filled the dings with multiple coats of lacquer letting each coat dry until the ding was filled. He was doing a refret at the time, so maybe he gave me a better deal on the ding repair. He leveled the fretboard, refretted with stainless frets, installed a new bone nut and fixed those dings I mentioned. Total cost for all that was $390.
    I don't really got anything to compared it too price vice, so it's hard to say. With all respect, remember I'am living in Norway, where salary, taxes and general living cost are a bit higher then US.
    We are few people and there's not that many that can make a living from fixing guitars. I had a 4 hours drive to get mine done

    Tor,

    Given the typical costs in Norway, and the results of the repair to your Historic LP, I think you did well.

    Lacquer finishes that incorporate tint over dyed pore filler have a translucent quality that is nearly impossible to spot-repair with an invisible blend. One can get close, and it looks like the tech who did your work knew how to do that.

    All good.

    Thank you! And i notice several of your answers earlier in the post, and you seem to know a bit on how these repairs work and what you could expect as a finished result.
    So it's somewhat comforting hearing that this is actually a good work and on par of what you could expect.

    All in all, I'm very pleased with the result, and yes, it wasn't cheap, but I din't find it to expensive either.

    I would agree with this one as my personal choice as well or just play the heck out of it and make it work with a history and character of a well used Paul.


    ps. Perfect for an aged look, just have to rub a lot of sweat and oil to it.
