    I had my replica painted yesterday by Historic Makeovers. Just so happens that HM had one of Uncle Lou's vintage 1960's at the shop that day so they matched it to his real burst. I think it turned out spot on. Check it out!

    From this:

    To this: The real burst is next to it and this is before some aging on my guitar

    Oh well. I guess Photobucket is going to be a problem. All of my photos are gone. Any ideas of a good replacement for Photobucket?

    Good to know they'll work on non-Gibson stuff. Looks killer!

    Wow that's some transformation, it's original colour looked so bland and uninspiring but looks amazing now
