Okay, I've color corrected the finish color to make it closer. It's as close as I can get.

The yellow in the photo in my reply above is too much. I think I got it closer with my own color correcting.

Is it possible to get rid of ultra-fine cleaning scratches?

I've painted and repainted cars many times, and have worked with polishing metal as well. I say this because I'm not inexperienced in getting mirror-like finishes.

I'm about to sell a guitar, and...

It is definitely too long, even if I adjust it with the metal buckles right up against the guitar.

I didn't want to cut the rounded end of the straps, as there's stitching there that's visible. What...

5' 11". I was six foot, but people can shrink about an inch per decade after they turn 40. In my case I shrank 1/2" per decade.

I always wondered about the faces some make. Jonny Lang often looks like he's in horrible pain. SRV had all sorts of odd expressions. He made noises as he played, too, although quietly.

Any way to check on a guitar I want to buy?

Anyone know the most popular guitar over $1500?

Thanks for the replies.



Okay. How is it that the woodgrain patterns of the pieces of veneer all line up perfectly? I can't spot a break in the pattern anywhere.
