    Default Two Old Gutted Gibsons to Revive

    This is a teaser, but Brian J of the Pimps of Joytime called me the other night from New Orleans and he has been badgering a guy to sell him these two old guitars. One is a gold-top LP and the other is a 345. Both either early 70s or mid-late 60s. No hardware or electronics. The finish on the gold-top LP is not to be messed with and the top of the 345 should be sanded back and re-sprayed with a transparent cherry red. One or both may require re-fretting. They have been shipped and photos will be up by the weekend.

    You know this post is worthless without photos. You're teasing us Doc!

    As much as I dread sanding back all that white paint, I know that it must be done and I cannot leave the bridge and tailpiece bushings in. I actually have a tool for this, but I thought this was a common sense approach with a touch of humor:

    Some guys get all the fun! And some guys get to watch.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
