VictoryGuitarShop: Looks great!

enzo nuestro: i love cherry bust though

Andy Russell: Amazing.

kieran mcgee: sick!!!!!!!!!!! :D

VictoryGuitarShop: Hi, 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. Thanks Peter Leveillee Victory Guitar Shop 401-392-3471 http://www.victoryguitar.com/victoryguitar/index.html

Stephen Page: You did an awesome job!!!! absolutely beautiful.

Rajay Khan: The quality of this work is to be highly praised. 

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 sunburst.

John Jones: man that is an ace finishing job done there i was quoted £250 to repaint mine no chance 

Howlinblind Muddyslim: Good Job

Rich Firyn: Very nice job with total attention paid to detail throughout the process.

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

frankiev1231: waiting days and mouth's waiting you're money " you should have bought a Classic model

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 option here?

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 that Les!

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...

Al Gonis: did you do all this work with spray?

TheMichaelConnor: You're freaking pro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 your interest.

njarnjas: Great video,also thinking to refinish my Studio to goltop finish,nice music too!

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.

ran123br: CONGRATULATIONS AMAZING WORK.
