    I normally don't care for aged guitars, but that is stunning. Very nice work done there. Enjoy it, mate!

    I personally don't like the aging on this at all. It looks overdone and borderline extreme.

    And apparently you can't dissent with the majority on this forum as my last message was completely erased.

    Aging has always been a subjective, and divisive, topic. Looks like the customer here got pretty much exactly what he was after, so hopefully he is happy. It's his guitar.

    most did yeah, but it was a '68 that inspired how I wanted the back to look:

    the black plastic is cool too. this isn't an original '56 so... :cool2:

    it didn't get here until 6:30 tonight. i didn't get to check it out until a couple hours ago. eventually i'll do a video for y'all. :thumb:
