I'll update in a couple of weeks (all being well)
LOL, close but I wasn't happy with the results of the buffing, so on to stage 2I'll bite....you are going to buff up the finish? BTW I thought that guitar was terrific to play and sounded great.
Darcy Thompson.Who is doing the work Dave?
This all started a month or so ago thanks to a trade with @sorbz62 . The guitar was "well played", had faded to a flat black, and had a few bumps and bruises. Nothing dramatic but when I played it, and loved it, OCD started to kick in. I've always loved Pelham Blue (in all of it's many shades) so thought I'd try it on this. When I went out to see Darcy he just mixed up a colour on the spot that I really liked so away we go If all goes to plan I should see something by the end of next week.When did all this start and who put their name on an ibanez AX?
LOL, sorry, NOT MINE. I was just pointing out to @sorbz62 that Mr. Smith himself seemed to like the colour. That's a new of the shelf job, not sure how close my blue will be to that, I suspect a little more like the SG above but until I see it on the guitar who knows.That looks badass! What a transformation. Did you keep the same electronics?
Well done Sir.
