Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Refinish




What do you think about this video?

Christopher Edwards: are we there yet no are we there yet no my R and D guitar has had crap lots of finishes

Confounded Bridge: Everything you did looks great. It's a shame you should have taken the time to do the binding as well.

Derik Henderson: Is this a Chinese "Gibson" that you redid or an actual American Gibson?

MacCunnyfunt: Looks so much better after the refinish.

newchannel: absolutely beautiful

MultiRickyFlores: Was that wood filler or grain filler you put on the back before staining? And does it need a coat of clear in between? Great video btw it came out perfect!

Edad Martin: Vintage PIO caps,perfect choice,youll like the .015 value.

dponzi56: Hi, great job. It looks beautiful. I was wondering if you could give me some pointers? I want to take the painted finish off of the neck of my melody maker. I want it natural, like your les paul. Did you use a chemical stripper on the neck? I want to take the finish from the back and sides of the headstock as well, without hurting the black front that has "Gibson" silk screened on it. Any thoughts? Thanks

Jay Salikin: Awesome! Great job! I'm currently doing the same thing and so far this video has helped immensely. The back turned out well, and I even did the front with some car paint (not really gold, but it was close). I now got my hands on some Reranch gold (hard to get in Canada), but am trying to figure out the best way to do it. I can't really tell from the video but are you sanding after the gold and before the clear coat, or do you clear coat right over the gold and then sand? Thanks!

Jerry D: Great Job,Could you give me a some what of a quick rundown on how you did your buffing stages? That's where i run into troubles,I can prep and spray & wet sand just fine, but i just cant seem to buff the dam body's out to a high gloss Please help me out here, Thanks

Manu Gianello: Great job !

Joshua Pitt: looking good

j1nt3tsu: i have a goldtop lpj that i want to refinish in gold. some of the edges are strarting to green and alot of the paint has begun to rot where my flesh touches the top edge. can I just spray Reranch goldtop paint on my already existing finish? my goal is to get a decent gold finish and then clear coat it for protection against regular playing.

Jimmy Lee Van De Putte: Do you just paint on a binding? My computer or youtube is a little fuzzy, I blame youtube. If so, why not minus the grain look? Just curious. The binding among many other things make a studio or cheaper Les Paul look so much different. I had a keen eye for details as far back as H.S. late 60's. Like wide binding, cheaper binding not up around the frets and worst they, not only Japanese copies missed, bridge and knob placement. Aslo I believe in the old school bridge setting, poles straight into the guitar body. No bushings. If going so far the old ABR-1 is best to most liking and if a small dowel does the trick, why not. I started playing around with Gibson's because of their mistakes and easily broken SG's etc. Not to mention 90% or more were red! Agai, now that I learned after watching your first video that you are doing this as a small business, I will send you some until you say stop! Take it easy. Refinishing guitars is almost second to none but vintage muscle cars! Close second though!

Mox_au: looks amazing....my dream guitar

Harm Directeur: very cool!

BarrettK1ng: Reminds me of a 57 les Paul very nicely done I nearly killed over at first but in the end it was a very beautiful refin

MrPhrozin: I nearly fell over with shock pulling out a brand new Gibson and hit it with paint sripper but not to worry you did a great job wouldn't be to many guy would have the balls to do that more power to ya man

paul1060: wow. great job. looks hot. is that catalyzed polyurethane for the clear coat? or just regular poly?

TheJbenwaa: Videos like this give me the refinish bug! I've used Reranch on Fenders I've worked on and it's a great product!
