Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Refinish




What do you think about this video?

Billy4269: This looks amazing, I plan on doing the exact same thing to my satin cherry les paul once it gets warmer out....I know exactly how to do the top and paint it gold but i'm not too sure how to get the back to be that natural yellowish brown color like you have in this video. How exactly do you achieve that finish on the back? The back of mine is cherry red with open grain you can feel all the little holes and stuff in it. Grain filler and then a dye??? 

kostis orfanidis: Great job man Keep it up !!!!

Ralf Bokelberg: Great music! Awesome Job on the guitar. I have this 83 lp standard which could use a bit of love too.

Gibby: What is the color of the Minwax stain you are using? It looks great 

richard couch: Just a wonderful refin. Looks like the real deal and the "natural binding" looks great. I thought the LP Studios were finished in Poly which doesn't come of with removers so well but it looks like it came off pretty easy for you. You show Strip-X and Jasco Premium Paint & Epoxy Remover. Did you use both?

ezon: I'm thinking of doing this on my guitar as well. But I want a natural finish with the same back as the guitar of the video. any tips on how I would be able to do this???

Fernando Posada: Thanks for the video. I'm lloking to refinish my melody maker from the original white to a vintage TV yellow, as you see it on Les Paul Juniors and specials. How do you think I could manage to get that look? Thanks again!

Ankur Nehru: wow

strangebirdsir: Wow. This is seriously amazing. Hats off to you. I always pass on guitars with no binding on the body because it looks so much better with it. I don't know why Gibson just doesn't leave the maple cap binding exposed like you did here. It would make their studios and "Cheaper" guitars look so much better. Now if I only had the knowledge to do something like this. Would you ever consider doing this for someone else?

jimiz jimiz: CAN TEAH ME

enzo nuestro: i love cherry bust though

Paulinho Ph de Souza: top

BillieSebastian: love the back of the guitar!

VictoryGuitarShop: Looks great!

nintensam64: what kind of paint did you used ?

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

MrSleesch13: How much is it if I would exactly the same ? ;)

Pat Crowe: Nice video!

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.

Andy Russell: Amazing.

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.
