I sent one of my R0's to RS Guitarworks for a top refin. I wasn't in love with the stock iced tea finsh and have a gold top fetish. My first LP was a '71 gold top. Plus,it has a dark back and one of my fav color combo's for a LP is a gold top with a dark back. For those who wonder why not just get a gold top historic. Well,there are no R0's available with a gold top/dark back finish. I prefer the R0 necks plus,this one is a keeper so,I wanted to make it how I wanted. Here are some in progress photos. How it arrived. Stripped but,not fully cleaned up yet. The first shot of gold.
