    Great you finally did it but with a Greco instead. I was waiting for your thread to learn from you!
    A 5 pieces top is a bit disspointing as notice above but if sounds good no complaints then....

    I had no clue you were jumping here on the forum, man!
    Once my lung and chest heal and the workshop is all complete I will start back up.
    Missing the guitar work after doing so many mid century restorations.

    You two kids kiss and say hello. I'm gonna watch this thread.

    I'm quite suprised to see a 5(or 6) piece top on a 1200. Tidy work so far!

    IMG_7944.JPG Here it is rubbed out to a muted vintage shine..
    I'll leave this to hang and cure while the Burst fades, and get on with some actual paying work for awhile! :)

    Thanks for the positive comments guys!

    I now have an itch for an SA1200 so will be listing this EGF in the MIJ classifieds today, but anyone interested feel free to PM me :) This will eat any R9 alive, and is a genuine near 40 year old handmade 'old wood' Les Paul, with some of the best PAFs I've ever heard, and rarer than a real Burst, so come get it! :)
