Forum automatically does that.Sorry, I thought it would just put the link in my post, not embed the video. Sorry if it seems obnoxious. Not my intention.
They must have missed the "half hearted question" in the thread title.I'm always that whenever someone says they want to relic something, it's like a calling card for pointless and unhelpful replies
The OP has already clearly stated that it's a guitar that is being played and it is in 'players grade' condition; also the fact that it's a 2006 LP lends itself to the fact that this might be an issue that is not going to be quickly resolved just by continuing to play it
I for one look forward to seeing the pics once the top has been refinished. Who are you sending it to? Good luck and I hope the you're happy with the outcome when you get it back
Sweetwater as in the mail order music place, sweetwater? I had no idea they did refinishing! What color did you decide to do the top?They must have missed the "half hearted question" in the thread title.
From what I understand about the lacquer used in that period, they don't age as gracefully as a vintage piece.
It is Sweetwater doing the refinish. Just a standard finish, no aging. I'm only a 2 hour drive from Sweetwater and didn't feel like risk shipping it anywhere. I also considered having the luthier on the Stewmac videos do it, but finding info on his shop was a bit tricky.
