I'm not worthy...that is in a word...greatness!
That's awesome, way to bring that one back from the dead! It looks fantastic.
Thanks for posting the pics and process
Awesome thread! Any chance we can hear this one?
Based on the color of the burst I would’ve used the fingerboard in the center. Curiosity has me here Jim, which one did he pick? Also, neither headstock has the original tuners. Will you replace those with originals after paint?
Amazing work Jim!!
Thanks for taking the time and making the effort to document. I know that's a lot of extra effort.
We are very fortunate to be able to see "step by step" such incredible transformations. Thank you very much for sharing with us!
Nice work boogieongtr!
I was just at Kim's a few weeks ago and if that's one of the GTs he showed me, it looks outstanding!
Trivia note: the SSN that was on the heel was issued in South Carolina.
Fkn awesome...need an apprentice?? Love woodshop....anyhow WHO are you?? Do you have a repair shop? okok sorry for my ignorance in advance LOL
I'm a little confused by this one - I guess I'm not seeing the relationship between the pocket and the bottom of the neck heel.
Great rebuild! Good stuff!!
Nice! What approximate year is the GT in the first pic??
Looking at post #24 I see that the “Les Paul Model” has been sanded off. In post #44 it reappears and looks like it is the original. How did you ackomplish this Jim?
All this in the middle of Winter! Jim you really made it look like fun! Great job, the owner should be over the moon!!!!!
Thanks for creating this thread. It is really inspiring (and interesting) to see thoughtful, meticulous work like this. It's a rarity. I have a particular love for restored and converted guitars when they're done really well. The hack jobs abound; great work like this is rare.
It drives me a little nuts that the checking isn't horizontal. Great job on the conversion, though!
