    Some years ago, my first one...

    Before - a 60s obscure generic Japanese guitar :

    After - a Custom Lefty Fake :

    Thanks @soulman969 ! :)

    I must confess that I'm not responsible of all the restoration work : I have been helped by luthier friends for the woodwork and the finish... :cool:

    Cheers !

    Still, to have taken something that was likely unusable and to have had the inspiration to turn it into two beautiful and playable guitars is quite an achievement no matter who else helped the project along. I doff my hat to you sir. :thumb:

    I have to design the pickguard, in the style of what I did for the Orange guitar : transparent and engraved.

    So Wait and See ! ;)

    Cheers
