    I usually don't have any problems with vintage conversions and restorations, but I'm a bit bummed out on this one. I feel that something that was quite unique has been destroyed.

    The quality of the workmanship was excellent however.

    There was a minute there before a router came out and fretboard was cut off that you could have had a nice pile of Bonamassa concert proceeds. The woodwork and skills are stunning but to do anything like that to a confirmed unicorn one of a kind that came out of the Gibson factory ...nope not now not ever. That's a sin IMO. Put down the bong and step away from the historical Gibsons....PLEASE

    If it were the other way around, converting a Burst into a Custom, I'm sure would have been a much bigger bigots fest.

    We don't know the story behind this guitar, how it came out of gibson factory,etc...

    So for me, I think JS did a really incredible work to convert it to a proper burst, and would love to hear how it sounds now...

    I have a 52-59 and can not be anymore happy about how it sounds, I mean it is by far the best sounding humbuckers LP I have had in my hands...

    Let us know JS if you record something with her...
