I'm sure you aren't thinking about selling the guitar anytime soon, but in the event you do have to sell, black will be a lot easier to sell than a metal flake.

good choice!

I'm excited for the guitar. :)

It was undoubtedly an amazing guitar before the refin, after the refin, and before you realize there was an inlay in the body. It's only going to get better from here on.


And frankly, this guitar couldn't be in more deserving hands!

:-* :-* :-*

I'm most excited about getting the right 'feel' of the finish on the neck, and some good frets.

I wonder what kind of inlay is lying beneath the finish on this bad boy?

Got an update from Josh last night--

apparently the neck has been refretted and the first coat of lacquer sprayed.

The body has been dipped in the yellow dye, has had its sealer coat, color coat, and initial clear coat.

No pencil body dates were found, but... well, I'll just let Josh tell it:
there was also a strange symbol carved into the trem cavity. The symbol was somewhat akin to the Mars sign, but in this case it was a clumsily scrawled circle, line protruding from it, and primitive arrow shape at the end of the line. Beneath that were three short line segments. Does this signal the coming of Ragnarok? The end of the Mayan bachtoon? Or was it just a bunch of stuff carved into a guitar that at the time had as much value as a 90's Mexican Strat does to us now? My guess is the Ragnarok.

Oh, dude, that's an anasazi heiroglyph.
This is an excellent rectangle
