Started working on this a year ago and ran into problems. The old battle axe looks pretty good now. Glad it's done.

I have to ask. Do you feel like you play better with it? No wrong answer. I bet it's more fun though.
I used to shoot "Three gun" back in the day. One day my Colt 45 broke so my Uncle let me use his super expensive 45. Did I shoot better? Hell no, I kept admiring it when I was supposed to be concentrating on targets. Would I have later after I calmed down? Oh Hell Yes!

No, i don't play any better that it's been refinished. I did it to restore it back to it's original configuration and to preserve it. It was pretty thrashed. Lots of deep scratches,chips, dents, buckle rash, missing and broken binding. I bought in '72 and rode it hard for quite a few years. Then it sat and then my son played it for a few years. Gigging and travel is really hard on equipment. It does feel good to play it now that it's back to almost new. It's different than most Les Pauls because it's a reissue of the '54 fretless wonder. Very low, flat frets with very low action. It was also pre humbucker. It came with a P-90 in the bridge and an odd P-90 type in the neck position. Both single coil. It now has DiMarzio humbuckers but they are the soap bar shape and mounting dimensions like the originals.

Ha. That's pretty cool. I am pretty sure my wife and I would end up divorced if we had to learn to do something like that.

Super slinky standard tuning. My fingers are not in fighting shape.
