1981 Les Paul Custom

These photos show the condition of the guitar when it arrived in our shop. The guitar had been routed for a Kahler tremolo at some point and had a couple cracks in the top. In addition, the finish was in pretty rough shape all around.

Here is a photo of the top after we filled the tremolo hole with maple, dyed the top and matched the grain. Note the color - while it looks a bit purple, once it's been clear-coated it will have that classic Gibson wine-red hue.

Here are some more photos - the guitar is all finished, polished and ready for reassembly.
