You are a master Lou!
Damn, I wish I had a tenth of your skill. That is utter badassery right there.
I can hardly wait to see it with the hardware on...
...and I bet you can hardly wait for TI's reaction when he gets it.
If all goes well I'll buff it tomorrow and start assembling it
I also got a LP Headstock restoration I'm doing so my hands are full. This LP was in a fire and the upper portion of the headstock got burnt pretty bad.
Gibson quoted the guy $2500 to repair but being the serial number was burned away they will not authenticate it as being a real LP.
Once I get up to the painting process I'll start a thread on the repair
2500 and Gibson won't call it an official LP? Man I am glad they have guys like you around.
My dream....have a SG made, but with the neck-through body design originally intended.
I just noticed all the Batmobiles.
That can be done !
Yes and there are several things stopping it. Money..Money..Money..and the fact that I've fallen in love with your work, but also have a buddy (with whom I also play gigs with) right here in town that builds great instruments....so even when I save up the bucks, which maker do I choose? The local that does great work or the guy on the web that does great work...for first class artists.
In one way, Lou, I'm glad I don't have the bucks yet! Of course in an ideal world, I'd commission one from you and one from my friend...P90s and humbuckers!
Ah, wishful thinking
It's ALMOST finished.
In between doing the LP headstock restoration I was able to:
Wet sand and polish out the SG, wire it, fit the tuners and bridge.
Still left to do: Cut the nut and final adjustments.
POLL: Do you guys think the pointy tip of the pick guard a little too much?
I was thinking of rounding it off just a tad !
Gorgeous..and I'd leave the pickguard as is, it balances the bigger upper horn.
Guys on another thread about neck-diving SG's should notice the strap button placement.
I like the look of the pickguard, it looks sharp. (ba-dum-bum!)
But seriously, folks, It looks awesome.
I think the guitar looks great!!! If I were going to make any changes, I might consider shaving down the pickguard between the pickups a bit so it doesn't look quite so thick right there. Either way, it is a real beauty.
Lou, I agree with Refugee on this. You sure know the little details it takes to make a fine instrument.
Your work is awsome. Thank you to share your experience with us.
