First thing I want to say is how much I have enjoyed this thread. Gil, you have shared so much great knowledge with us it makes it less intimidating to go ahead on my own builds. I only wish I had the kind of patience and skill you do. All of your builds are so spectacular. Now that I see you are building multiple LPs based off of your proto build. Have you decided on the finish of them all? Are they all planned to be classic burst? If not I have a suggestion. The late 70's early 80's version of the silver burst. I only mention it from a purely selfish point of view, so I could see your method of creating that aged patina on the silverburst, it has a nearly green look to it. If nothing else do you have some tips on how to achieve such a look that it looks authentic? Again great thread.
