Socratesis, I just ordered a new Gibson SG '61 Reissue Satin, in worn brown finish... Is that the same line you did this with your worn ebony finish? That thing came out looking great, what a dreamy gleam! While I haven't decided quite yet, I am very tempted to try the same with mine once it arrives. I think the worn brown finish shined up like this could really make for something amazing... If you don't mind my asking, what products and procedures did you use, precisely? How long did it take, and how difficult was it? (I haven't done much guitar finishing work before). I've done a lot of searching online, and yours seems to be the best result I have seen to date, not to mention starting with the same (I think) make/model and finish, just a different color... Many thanks, and congrats again - that thing looks beautiful! Totally agree with the Steinway comment... Just plain classy.
