Pretty much my dream Jet!
Beautiful guitar Radd . Congrats and enjoy that beauty
Congratulations and thanks for sharing the info. I have a set of micromesh pads which i used to take the finish down on a sticky neck, but it never occured to me to use them on hardware. What was the coarsest pad grade that you used first?
Where were ya when I needed ya - had that exact git fs on here at a fair price in mint condition for quite awhile and not one bite.
Glad it worked out for you!!
What a beauty, and a great way to bond with it, restoring the metal finish by hand. Congratulations, enjoy it!
Very nice, Congrads
Thanks for the review and welcome to the 6228 club! I love mine.
Sometimes it all comes down to timing and money. It was for me when yours was for sale.
Pretty cool geet,congrats!
to remove the oxidation exactly what did you do.
Micro mesh pads ok - anything else applied?
Had to look again. That's a stunning guitar.
Nice score, NICE clean up project.
That's a very cool score radd, and the cleanup makes it look like new, just as you said!
Looks great, especially with the application of all that elbow grease.
I was planning on using a metal or chrome polish, or even Semichrome polish, I have from motorcycle days but I elected not to because it came out so good and I really did not want to deal with the goop around the pickups or the bridge screws.
I started with 1800 and finished up with the 12000
I also kept the pads clean and damp but not wet when working on the pickups.
Congrats, that is truly beautiful! I particularly like the natural back in general & the grain & color on this one is awesome.
I kinda like the patina on the before pics but you did a great job restoring the plating it to new.
