    Great idea! If it works, I might as well head to L.A. and see if an infamous amp maker has any amps just hanging around I can take an interest in....

    Anyone have Howard Dumble's address?

    wow... ok Liam so if your luthier has messed up that bad on refinishing the guitar pack it up and send it off to RS, Historic Makeovers, Tom Bartlett, Gord Miller or any of the well known guys... if you can't find a set of original P90's???? or MiniHums??? for it get some lollars or something until then. As for the electronics get in touch with Jonesy and he can probably hook you up.

    If you restore it to as close to original as possible you might can salvage some of the value of that kick ass guitar.

    When I saw the picture of the stripped guitar I almost shed a tear....

    ...almost...

    Stripping a 68 GT because the paint looked "old".....

    :(

    no no you ain't been following, the guitar had the pickups replaced many years ago to HBs was only considering changing inside the cavity cause its a bit messy i was asking advice on that and now i know to leave it be, ill get it cleaned up, as far as the paint work really had no choice there wasn't much gold left as this guitar was seriously played since bought

    Yeah, come to think of it, nothing about this thread makes any damned sense!

    This kinda reminds me of that morning when.... Who was it? SilverBurstSomething had that conversation with his alter-ego, the one with the '59 & Down syndrome, or something like that.

    If I'm wrong, my apologies to Liam. It's just that this pretty bizarre.

    Just to refresh all due to the fool who fucked up my page!
    I was left a 68 gt Les Paul with almost no paint left on it and over the years with my dad messing around in cavity changing his sound it was full of solder, i was gonna replace the pots but not the sprauge caps, but after what you guys have saying ill just do a clean up off cavity, it had its scratch plate removed because the p90s where changed in the late 70.s early 80.s and the well known guitar specialist here kept the p90s , took advantage of my dad, I still have the scratch plate and the ring that goes around the pickup change switch, to refit the scratch plate it will have to be adjusted to fit around the H.Bs. I left the guitar into a specialist to be resprayed to gold , there was a problem where as the guitar was painted it started to bleed, therefore the guitar had to start again and be sealed and rested before attempting to start the repaint, as to date its now on its fourth coat with a further 4 to follow, Ive instructed that i dont want it looking like new and its to be aged on completion as this will look correct with the age of guitar, there is nothing been done to the rere woodwork so it will have all its original buckle marks etc , Its not my intention to ruin the guitar, I'm trying to mind it and get it back as close to original .

    Can we see a before pic of the "messed up finish?"

    Generally speaking, no amount of natural wear is "too much" - and should be left alone as original. IMO. And many others.
