Well played,Sir,Well played...
This just stunning work. Bravo!
I aged the inlays with some pine wood stain.
I don't see how that could be improved. You've achieved nirvana with that guitar.
Now go play it!
I said it once and I'll say it again. That is ridiculously good!
That is just incredible work, truly incredible. Very well done sir, it takes an artist to do work like that.
My jaw continues to drop! Great work!
Greatest LP conversion ever!
I have not been on the forum for a while, so your build is all brand new to me.
"Blooming heck" I thought as I flicked thru the build thread, you've done it again.
What a stunning creation. 10 out of 10.
As a bit of a foot note, I resprayed an LP with Steve's (Manchester guitar tech) gold paint, and once checked added the good old salt and vinegar mix. My gold wet green. I made the mix up to be like a thick-ish paste and then placed it where I wanted it ad walked away from it for a few hour's.
Ive just remembered that I have a LP studio myself that need's to be finished. Ive not gone gold, but more of a yellow tint,Ive added a MOP Gibson logo, and if you squint from about 400 yards away it kind of look's like a Gary Moore signature from about 1999-2000.
I think Studio's may become the guitar of choice now for the modifier's with thank's to yourself and of course another great refinisher Mr Beef.
I'm off to the North East guitar show next weekend, I will be looking to find a studio and a can or two of paint!
Job well done!!! You Sir, are an inspiration.
Nice work, BDL!
Very cool transformation and I am jealous of your skills.
So sweet. How many hours spent?
What has happened here? I can't believe what has happened here.
This is amazing.
Been away from the forum for a few weeks, and I come back to THIS?!?!!? Mind blown. Mind TOTALLY blown. That thing looks like it left Kalamazoo about the time Chevy was adding tail fins to the BelAir! Magnificent job, neighbor, magnificent!
Yep, well worth logging back in.
Absolutely fantastic job - I doubt there's a finer looking LP Studio anywhere in the world.
Hey a Tiny, awesome stuff as usual! Must get a guitar over to where the crack is good tout suite
Amazing work and an amazing result
I've just re-read this all again, and I am in absolute awe.
I doff my hat to you Mr. BDL.
I wish I had the confidence to do something similar. Id love to add binding to a Studio.
Im useless at wood work, but eager to learn. I think I'll buy a router and see if I can figure it all out on some scrap wood. A Fender...
It's a funny old thing, but I never thought that at the age of 52 that I would have "idol's". BDL (and Mr Beef), you are my poster boy's now.
