Boingusboingus: Lovely job. Looks like a million dollars. I just bought a stripped 1972
Deluxe that I'm hoping to get redone like this. It too began life as a

VictoryGuitarShop: Looks great!
Andy Russell: Amazing.
I am having trouble finding out what kind of gold flakes Gibson uses in
their current gold tops. It seems six years ago or so they switched from
using #256 flakes from Crescent Bronze to something that does not turn
green from wear. I appreciate any help you can provide.

frankiev1231: It's a Chick painting this Axes HELLO" fellas i wonder if she Cute?

enjoiamelon: great refinish, you should of done faux binding on the top like how you did
with the maple cap for the sides
rnrchris: Thanks for the tip about the Bartleys Light Pore Filler but I could not
find it online. Do you know a place I could buy some? Thanks again! Chris
MrForhelvede: It looks much better now. Nothing beats a gold top. But you should have
closed the wormholes and thrown away the scratch plate. Then it would have
been superb. At least in my opinion.
twinsmm1: @LastL98 Thanks for the reply! The guitar I'm speaking of -is- actually a,
quote Goldtop unquote (Gibson fake). The existing finish color isn't even
close to the real deal. Having said that, the paint on the top covers the
binding to the edge of the guitar. I need to get the fihish off the binding
too (to clarify). I'm thinking that sanding down to the binding is my only
Bobby Smith: Looks great! But you needed to spray green first and then the Gold over
that. This gives it the greenish gold top look like Gibson did it.
Shain Rochester: At first I thought this was a bad idea. Why would anybody want to change
from burst to Goldtop? Usually you hear it done the opposite. Once I seen
what you did, I knew why. That is absolutely rocking what you done with
Greg McKnight: Nice work. A question: Do you wet sand after each spray (primer, color,
clear)? And what grits do you go through for the wet sanding? Okay, so that
was two questions :) Like your website too.
Ivan Fornos: Great results!!! What do you use for golden paint ?? something from Stewmac?
Guilherme Brito Gomes: Uooh! Man, congrats on this job.
LapidaryDreams: @infernalmetaller You can see a few more of my guitar refinishing work as
well as the process used in detail on Lapidarydreams dot cam .
bobbermanland: you do know that you could have just bought a gold top lp saved yourself a
crapload of time
LastL98: @twinsmm1 Absolutely! Use a chemical stripper but stay far away from the
binding. Tape it off with some 3 M Detailers Pin Stripping Tape. just sand
"carefully" next to the binding & go very slow & methodically. Take most
off though using a regular stripping agent. I'm more than happy to answer
any questions you may have about the process. Best of luck on your project.
RiotBadger: Great work!
Bronze Oceans: @acdcruleurmom It's "La Grange" by ZZ Top...
LapidaryDreams: Check our webs ite @ w w w LapidaryDreams . c om for pricing & process as
well as the wait list & time schedules.
Martin Blue: Is it a studio ?
goodyear2602: I am sooooo happy that you left the mahogany as it was and used only clear
laquer on the back. Superb!
LapidaryDreams: We refinish all types of guitars. We currently have two clients that are
not Gibson or LP styles. One is a beautifully 'hand-built' custom Bass made
with in Maple the other is a Warrior Six String Electric Guitar. Thanks for
njarnjas: Great video,also thinking to refinish my Studio to goltop finish,nice music
Campbellianistic: i want a goldtop now. that thing is gorgeous.
Edi Sosa: Excelente trabajo!
James Green: Hi there, i'm doing a diy gold top, on the last stages of painting. Love
how yours looks. I'm wetsanding the gold and finding that the colour
becomes much more dull/grey from sandpaper colour. I would really like to
know if this is normal as I want to take away the orange peel and have it
nice and shiny when polished. So when you wetsanded before and after clear
coats, what grit did you use? and did you get the colour come through in
the end or will it be left dull. Thanks.
Noir Felis: Nice
LapidaryDreams: After full coverage of Nitro & Bronze Powder is achieved your correct. The
Bronze needs to be 'locked~in' with several passes of High Gloss Clear
Nitrocellulose. The Top Coat is then Wet~Sanded/Buffed/Glazed. Thanks for
your comment & question!
Dangusyo: wow. that is amazing. I must learn to do this. Great job dude
Andrew Ferreira: Honestly, at first i was going to bitch at you for ruining a Gibson, Then i
saw it was only a studio, and the fact that it actually looks better in the
gold top then the original cherry sunburst, Good job.
olalator: very gentle coating) so sweet
knievelhotmail: I found your vid while researching my project, a goldtop/black backed LP.
You did a shockingly good job, its really excellent.
Michael P: Great Job, I question, did you sand the paint between coats?? I didn't
think you could sand metal-flake between coats.
