Hi, all. I just wanted to share a few pics of this light resto. This is a special little thing, isn't it? Owner brought her in with the original case (found a french fry from 1959 under the crushed velour backing) and asked for a little clean up, so I did a little work on the body binding and neck inlays before giving it a nice once or twice over. Had a blast and was finally able to use my clamps. When you are dealing with vintage instruments, discretion is the order of the day. Every item you fix may yield 3 more to repair. You have to really ensure that your techniques won't create collateral damage. If you apply too much heat to stretch the binding, you are going to upset the finish. The wrong chemicals can ruin the patina, exposing the repair. I decided to go easy and just take a few decades off of this one. Here are a few pics of this interesting guitar. Next week, I'll have a 60s SG Special in near mint condition and a couple of original blackfaces to service. I'll try to get some shots of the action up.
