Looking to Refinish, Help Me Decide!!

Postby Nateispro » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:43 pm

Alright. I have my second 79 St-50 coming in tomorrow. Besides a replaced tuner it's all stock. I want to leave it that way too. My other 79 has Gibson Tarbacks, a extra hole drilled into it and holes from other tuners plus a good finish crack in the neck pocket. I want to refinish it (both are sunburst) but im not sure what too do. Im thinking gold top with natural back and sides, or all natural. What do you guys say??

With those contours, natural/stained could look really nice.






...call me old fashioned (and having two might make me think different), but I like it as is :)

I like it a lot too! Im just not a huge fan of sunburst usually and I figure why not? I was thinking maybe also doing a color on the front flat surface and leaving the contours/back/sides natural as well

I think goldtop would look cool with this. But also a solid light blue/green? :idk:

^Pastels are always nice. Especially when they start to flake/chip/age.

Gold top could be cool...would you do a binding/pinstripe separation kind of thing?

Shell pink right over the old burst would be rad.

The second one did, I still have this one though! The second was supposed to be cleaner hence why I wanted to refin this one!
