Amazing work! Really love the glow that this burst has!
Just great.......love it
Excellent work on the pickup cavities and what a killer paint job!! I am super impressed. Thank you for sharing! Keep up the great work.
Unbelievable job! That thing is killer. How does it sound?
Thanks all! I can honestly say this is one of the very best sounding Les Pauls I’ve ever played, with a total Burst sound, feel and response.
Here’s a ‘53/‘59 I’m almost ready to paint, which was pretty abused with multiple refins that left the top rather flat as well as cracked by the knobs and plugged with end grain dowels, and the neck heavily thinned.
I built the neck thickness back up with a 2mm mahogany shim hidden under new binding, and vacuum veneered the top with a beautiful slip matched flame maple veneer, and it’s going to be KILLER!
It's a beauty. Enjoy!!
Great job on the conversion!
Oh boy, can’t wait to see it finished...
You put the erection in resurrection!
Sexy! You must be aroused.
That 55/59 is a thing of great beauty. Just fantastic. I', curious about the 53/59. With your chops, why veneer the top? Maybe I'm just turned off by the fact that every Epi getting spewed out of an Asian assembly line can have a AAAAAAAAAAA (veneer) top that I find that feature to be a real turnoff. I'm doubtless in a minority, but I would rather see your fantastic burst on a plaintop than slap a veneer on that 53. But that's just personal choice. Your work is amazing, and resurrecting these guitars is really a great mission. Impressive, sir!
That is a truly magnificent transformation. You should be super proud. Gibson Custom should take a cue from this. The plain top look is perfect, and the finish is top notch.
You truly worked with the flaws of the top and made it work!
Great great great paint job!
Can't wait to see the second one.
You made them alive again. Great stunning job. Thinking about be a chest surgeon?
Ah I remember you from Instagram! Player Grade Vintage!
You've done such an amazing job with that 55/59 conversion
