Thanks! I'm happy with it! It had some of the Amber left in the pickup routings so he matched to that. Said the color was a tad darker than normal - but it looks really nice.

Just looking at the photos it's hard to believe the finish is not original. Amazing job on the aging, too!

Yeah, nice looking headstock. I wish my new Jag had aged looking would like that.

Fantastic. I just sent a message to Dan last night asking what he charges for a 60s JM body refin. This looks great! Congrats on the score!

I feel that his rates are very reasonable for the quality of his finishes. I haven't had a person yet guess my guitar has been refinished. And thanks!

Looks absolutely great. I have my 1962 being done by someone's supposed to be among the world's best, for a large sum, and I'd be super-happy if it looks as good as yours.

Well worth the investment, and an especial well-done for going for sunburst, which looks way more convincing than yet another Custom Colour.
