For you to have spoken to him after they did this posthumously, wouldn't he have had to be dead when you spoke to him? ;)

Thanks for the replies. It's good to know the MOP will hold up. Now I have to figure out if the guitar is legit, or if the inlays were done after market.

Anyone have real mother of pearl fret board inlay?

I've been looking at some Les Paul's again, and there's one that caught my eye that has real mother of pearl inlay. The difference between real MOP and even the best fake MOP is night and day.

Yesterday I spent about three hours going over all the frets. I sanded each one, starting with 400 grit, and going to 600, 1000, 1500 and 2000. I examined each fret with a 10X magnifier as I worked...

I often had the problem with the nut on the jack loosening. I finally loosened the nut, put a drop of Loctite blue (not red!) on the threads and tightened the nut. That takes care of it.

When you say that the jack is loose, do you mean the jack itself that the plug goes into, or the chrome piece that holds the jack and is screwed into the body? If it's the chrome piece, you can just...

I change all of the strings on each guitar about once a month. I use a nickel roller wound .018 for the G string, and the winding breaks every few days at spots where I do a lot of bends, so I...

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.
