How's this one wet your whistle?
Meh. Leave that thing be. Angus' Custom does nothing for me personally. Not big on black guitars.
Hey TC, longtime no see!
That’s a beaut, I love the look of those ages custom headstocks, where the white turns a goldish hue, almost orange.
I am not sold on the finish of that guitar though. You can really see the wood grain through the black; in an unflattering way.
At least to me. Anyone else see that?
I like that, that's the nitro lacquer shrinking into the wood. It's hard to replicate that on an artificial relic.
Thanks for the info. At least I know what causes that now. Guitar is still beautiful
I have always loved Angus' black Custom, and yet, I could not possibly suggest you get that beauty refinished. Not only would it be a shame to hide that woodgrain, chances are the refinish would not be to the same quality level of the original finish.
As for that '69 Custom above, I think it's actually checking that we're seeing, and not the woodgrain. But I always like to see a little grain on the surface because it means the finish wasn't laid on too thick.
Sorry about that! I'm just proud of it! I say have it refinished! Life is short!
Yours is just stunning splitdiamond! You must just look at it and go, “yup, I did that one right”!
Add a black, multi-ply pickguard, with a thick white edge stripe to tie it to the binding. nice!
Thank you! I am very pleased with it. Though sometimes I waffle back and forth about whether changing the inlays to split blocks is a bit too much. Sometimes I like it how it is, and some times I think I should gone with the standard solid blocks.
I would vote if you were going to paint it an interesting color....
But to replicate a boring guitar.... snooze....
Even anus doesn’t use that guitar anymore.
I think you should refinish it in whatever colour you want, it´s your guitar, not annyone elses. If you really want to refinnish your guitar don´t let these curmudgeons stop you. I think it would look wicked in black!
Also, I bet you didn´t buy that SG to sell it again. You probably bought it to play on it, and if refinishing it in black makes you want to play it more, it is the right call.
GOD DAMN EVERYONE, STOP TELLING PEOPLE TO AVOID RUINING THEIR GUITAR'S RESALE VALUE, THATS HOW I WILL END UP WITH ONE OF THESE ONE DAY lol
I don’t give a flying rats ass about resale value.
Just make it YOUR guitar not a replica of someone else’s.
