    Wow. That is incredible. Thanks for sharing. You have easily done the best thing for that old guitar.

    Just amazing! I'd say it worked out great that you didn't end up with that goldtop. ;)

    Congrats again!

    Just beautiful! I have to admit, I would have voted for the goldtop. But this turned out so much better looking. Tom is an artist. Enjoy your "new" Lester.

    THAT IS REALLY NICE!! congratulations. need more pics!

    regarding the process , the neck and fingerboard were taken off for the binding, but the inlays were removed and reglued to? my guess is plane the fingerboard?

    would love to see a picture of the headstock where the old repaired break was. was if felt to be solid and left alone or " rerepaired? "
