    I'm using this thread to consolidate some of the final results of refins completed by Windy City Guitars for MLP members. Most of these guitars have their own threads. I might add some non-member guitars as well.

    R8 with parts fading:

    LP Studio transformed into AFD inspired "Standard"

    One of my favorites... 1971 LP Deluxe refinished to Jimmy Page No. 3 - Cardinal Red with Gold Top undercoat and light aging:

    Hi Jim, I'm late to the party. Folks, I own the black and tan and the work Jim does is first rate! He transformed an ugly duckling into a swan. I wouldn't hesitate to do another project with Jim in the future, and I am sure I will as I have an idea or three floating around my head.. Give him a shot you'll be happy you did.

    Hold up... That slab of maple was under a goldtop?! When they're actively selling "plaintop" R8s, you'd think some manner of sorting would preclude that top getting painted over.

    Was that a single-cut guitar, before the changes?

    Yes, it was. Not sure when it was done, but the owner wanted it to look like it was cut.

    Can't say that I've ever done an animal print before, but this members guitar looks pretty cool... the 80's are back!

    Not overly sensitive at all. I respect others' advice and opinions, and I have the right to defend and/or explain myself. I don't enjoy dickhead comments from people and I expect that you wouldn't either. There's a difference between constructive criticism and just being rude. When the bashing turns into a sport, it gets annoying.

    I can`t wait to get it. Being home and off my feet for a while I`ll have time to put some serious playing time on it.
