26 Windsordave 1 week ago So, there is no telling what condition this guitar was in when it was stripped down to restore. So restoring it to it's original glory is wrong? We gripe about relics around here all of the time. I would say to do it right bringing her back to her original glory would be the right thing to do, right? If it gets played it'll gain it's own respective scars and yellowing again. Lovely restore, IMO. Edit: Either way is fine.To each his own. Curt did a great job on yours, Joe. I'm with you Dave; if you're going to restore it do it right and leave that relicing shit to the 'custom' shop. I wouldn't have the finish be stark white but rather more an ivory shade and let it age from there.
