My first Custom Shop Gibson. I love this ‘57 reissue Jr. Someone took what appears to be steel wool to it. It has some dings here and there. But sounds and feels fantastic. I was worried about the big neck but it actually feels great.

Yeah. The seller lives just down the street from me. I was able to put my hands on it before committing.

Looks cool as hell in those pics. Doesn't seem like it's botched at all.

I Love it!! HNGD :)

Thanks @truckermde. It was pretty bad before I sent it off to get fixed and reliced. The steel wool or whatever was used did a number on it. The pics at the top of the thread was what it looked like when I acquired it.

“Sent it” to get relic’d? Out of curiosity, who does that and what tdo they charge for this ”service”?
