it's not bad scraping... it's from the paint running under the masking tape.
thanks ubw. sure is a stunner, and a dream to playStunning. Thanks for sharing the story and the pics especially.
There is no tape on the binding at the front of the guitar.
You spray color coats then scrape the entire binding.
Then shoot the clear coat.
That's how Gibson does it, not Florian by the look of his picture. I see tape on the sides and on top of the binding. Seen it done lots of times.
Gibson does not mask the top binding. They scrape the binding.
When I finish the burst on my build I only mask the sides.
Then I scrape all of the binding to perfection.
All of the color need to be remove to avoid the look this guitar got.
Its almost like the burst got to wet from the clear and meld into the clear coat.
Unless the big lottery win comes in (which seems unlikely since I rarely buy a ticket) I see no vintage burst in my future. This makeover will I hope take me closer to the aesthetic, vibe and mojo of a vintage burst. I'm already eagerly acquiring new parts to finish the look, and managed recently to score some 60s gold plated grovers that are so aged they bear a resemblance to those sported by Mr James Page.
All the pics are stunning!
But that couple here...
I suspect you like Jimmy Page!
