Thanks, apart from the 62 and 61-ish (61 body, 62 neck and a lot of other random year bits!) Jazzmaster theres a 1979 Les Paul Custom, a 2004 Les Paul Standard with ebony fretboard and a 1965 SG Junior.

Never thought of myself as a Gibson guy but ended up with 3 cool ones somehow :whistle:

Some of you may have seen my other thread on this guitar being concerned about how original it actually was. Thanks to knowledgeable folk on here I was able to confirm the pickups are original and while the non original pots,switch and wiring were very annoying on a guitar bought from a dealer as all original internally >:( , the sound and playabilty of the guitar were good enough that I kept it. Had the dealer been in the UK I probably would have gone after them harder but doing that internationally was a bit more hassle than I'd probably get back from it.

However having the guitar open revealed how totally thick and gross the poly white finish was. It deserved a better finish than that so I sent it off to Rexter, who was great to work with, and he refinished it into beautiful nitro Burgundy Mist Metallic, with matching headstock. It just feels so much better now as well as looking incredible. This ones a definite keeper, it sounds and plays as good as it now looks.

Looks amazing!
What do you call the color on the '61?

That's a great looking Burgandy Mist. Honestly I like the white better though.

The white looked good in photos but in person it was really not so nice, and it felt horrible, really thick and plastic feeling.

Dude your 2020 collection is insane. That black Jaguar with matching headstock?! The friggin cherry sunburst LPC?! P90 equipped SG?!
Saw the Burgundy Mist on Rexter's profile and fell in love, but that maroon SOB is really going after my heart.
Jelly! 😤😤😤😤
