Good Evening Ladies and Gents. I've got a 1967 Gretsch that means more to me than almost anything on the planet (amazing sentimental value and a fairy tale story behind it.) It needs a refret and the binding is brittle and breaking. I'm currently interviewing luthiers in the area to find who would be the best choice for the job (St Lucie County - Palm Beach County for those who can make recommendations!) Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what I want to do. Either restore it to it's original glory (has all the pieces but needs new binding, refret and maybe gloss up the finish a bit.) Or go full rockabilly with new paint, new knobs... just make it more "me". What are your thoughts in this scenario? I'd be happy either way honestly, but I really can't figure out what I want personally so I'd like to have a discussion around it and see different points of view.
