Thanks Dixie. I've just picked up another Studio. I'm going to do a wrapover on this one.
When are you gonna get this baby up on eBay?
Incredible work! Though not sure if it would be just easier to buy one considering the amount of work but that's no fun now is it?
Does the guitar sound any different compared to before?
Crazy good skills.
I am in awe of the talent of the OP. My word, this is amazing!
You've got to have big balls and some skill to deconstruct a perfectly good guitar like that...
100% impressive all the way through. I haven't seen this much win in a single thread ever.
This is so unbelievable. Thoroughly impressed and fascinated by this.
Great work, love it. Thanks for posting all the photos and explanations.
I notice that Badly Drawn Les has been quiet on here for a while.
Im wondering if he's been secretly picked up by Gibson, flown to the US and then placed in charge of the custom shop in an attempt to save what could be a sinking ship? If by chance this has happened BDL, could you please have a look in the waste bin's at the back of the factory and see if there's any "scrap" guitar's going spare? Im sure a deal can be done.
If you havent been taken away, any new's on the Studio with the wrap over tailpiece you mentioned somewhere above???
Thanks DD, been a while since I checked in. Here's a pic of the wrapover.
I'm always busy. Here's a '64 Vox Teardrop I restored, Brian Jones style.
And a '68 style Hendrix Woodstock Strat. Currently up for sale.
Badly Drawn Les, can I just send you all my guitars and you'll work your magic on them? I've got a Les Paul Traditional I'm sure would make a great 1960 Standard
Thank you BDL for sharing more of your lovely gee-tar's. Im begging you to tell us all more about the wrap over gold top?? I started a gold top project myself but it hasnt gone to plan so Im going to restart it. Please continue to provide inspiration.
BDL, guitarist by nature seem to be a bunch of fruity nut loop's. Ive read some damning comment's about some relic/resto job's that I thought looked good, but Ive never yet seen a bad or critical comment about what you do. Im sure if you were to go into business you'd give the big boy's a few sleepless night's.
Holy crap that goldtop, I mean, I can't even. My brain won't send the words to my fingers to express how floored I am right now. Holy shit
Badly Drawn Les, I just got here because I got a glimpse of the thread title
in the "New threads" in the upper right corner as I was logging in.
After login it had disappeared so I looked for it and found this wonderful thread.
It is totally awesome!
Not a Bigsby fan myself, but then I also got to see a wraptail which is exactly my cup of tea!
Thanks for sharing the evolution of the Masterpiece!
Anyway, I think that more people should see your work.
Gonna go post a link in the Backstage area.
People gotta see this!
Thanks for a great great great thread!
Holy freakin' crapballs!!
How is that even possible to get it so perfect? That is simply stunning work.
I think my boat could use a coat of paint just to fix 'er up a bit.
There! That's a little nicer looking now.
