    Pair of Metallica Flying V's

    This project snowballed while talking with Nate (deadlyweasle) and who knows how far it's going to go... I happened to have a white ESP Explorer and a Jackson RR (neither of which I play). But for now, it's just these two Flying V's. The original plan was to turn the Gibson V into Hetfield's...

    Gold over Dark Burst Relic

    I've been following Encrypted's thread "Thinking of aging my R7" found here:http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/showthread.php?t=362104 as I've been working on an R7 refinish. I liked the Perry Burst so much on the R7 that I decided to do the same to one of my Standards, but then deadlyweasel sent...

    Pickup Painting Experiment

    I have a ton of pickups laying around at the shop, mostly black bobbins, and some zebras. I really wanted to put a pair of double creams on my CAR Standard, but didn't want to have to order a custom set. I didn't realize that DiMarzio has the rights to double creams/whites. I've read in...

    R7 Gold Top Refin... Perry Burst

    This is a members R7 that's going through a refin. The original finish was gold top and the member suspected a nice flame maple cap underneath the gold... and he was right! I really love the look of the burst on this guitar... similar to Fender's 3 color sunburst. This one has proven to...

    LP Standard Refin in Custom Color

    I must have a thing for "Slash" LP's, since this is the second one I've done. I've always loved his first signature LP... a 1990 in a custom red/orange with yellow binding and back hardware. There were only 4 made, and I wanted one. So I took my 2005 Standard, which has a 60's neck and an...

    1958 or 1955 LP Junior Restoration

    This is the other guitar I received the other day. We're not sure if it's a '55 or a '58, but we'll soon find out when I pull bridge bushings later today. It was refinished at some point from TV yellow to the current color in poly. The headstock was also redone, so I'll be bringing that back...

    1974 LP Custom Restoration

    This is one of two guitars dropped off by a member, the other is a '58 Junior that is in for a restoration. This custom is truly a fretless wonder and the member wants the frets replaced with something a little more substantial. We noticed that the guitar had a sloppy refin from white to black...

    Serial Number Help on Vintage SG

    I'm totally confused with what I believe to be my 1976 SG Standard and need some help on the serial number and some other (in)consistencies. The serial number on my '76 SG is 254049 and it is stamped on the back of the headstock as is "made in USA." One of the websites I checked the serial...

    Customizing a Custom with a New Fretboard

    The start of another project... replacing the rosewood fretboard with a maple one on this LP Custom. I have a nice piece of maple that I'm going to radius, add block inlays, bind, etc., and hopefully with minimal touchup required. I didn't really show too much detail on the R8 fretboard...

    A Few Fun Projects

    In the time spent in between spaying clear coats and waiting for nitro to harden so I can freeze the guitars, I decided to work on a few projects for my own collection, or to sell since I have WAY too many guitars. Here's a few of the projects. After doing the Explorer, I decided that I...

    EDS-1275 Build

    This has been in the works for about 1 1/2 years now. I've been slowly making progress in between other projects and I'm finally in the home stretch. Why couldn't I just do a single neck guitar for my first build?:laugh2: Oh well, I have too many LP's right now and I've always wanted an...

    Doing this for an MLP member. He sent me a wine red studio and asked for neck and body binding, MOP logo, and red undercoat beneath the black nitro. Similar to a blackburst, so as it wears, the red will show. I've spared everyone the early stage pics of binding etc. since I've posted...

    R8 Burst Refinish

    I'm starting the process of refinishing a members R8 burst that was previously refinished by someone else, although not to the satisfaction of the member. I'm pleased that he has asked me to do the work for him and that he has confidence in my work. I know this is a risky thread to post...

    This is for a client in Canada who sent me his 2003 LP Studio for an overhaul. He wants to transform this guitar from an average looking black Studio to something much more interesting... a Gold Top with body and neck binding! Here's what it originally looked like: The lacquer on the body...
