A tale of two guitar finishes
Hey all....finish question
I saw a good friend on the weekend who I used to jam with 'back in the day' He plays a black Les Paul 'Pro' that has P-90s in it. It always sounded great when we used to goof around. My question is about the finish on his neck. His paint has worn away so much that I asked if he had sanded it, the answer being no. Is this normal? I mean his frets, though in need of a crowning still had life on them.
I only ask because my 70's Yammy SG had been so played that it needed to be refretted, but the neck finsh is still nice and glossy and it definitely has not been repainted. Other vintage LPs that I have looked at also had intact paint.
Was this a QC issue from the 70s or does my buddy Ted have 'acid' for sweat?
