Love how ridiculously off-center the two-piece maple top is, that's the magic of a GT refinish

Come to think of it wasn't George Harrison's "Lucy" a 57 GT refinished in red with a similar off center seam?

It's the main reason some folks recap! I could never get used to the off set multiple seams. On that alone I'd have to refin in Gold.

This one really is quite nice. The off-center is so far off that it's nearly a one-piece cap with a darker, almost burst-like, maple strip on the top side, almost as if sprayed that way. A slightly off-center cap would bother me, but this one looks just perfect.

Off center seams I can live with, in fact I find them attractive..... nipples on the other hand just look weird off center... oh, wait we’re talking guitars. Yeah I have the same opinion on those too.


Now your thinking...... “what?”...... :rofl:
