Hi PoorMan!

Thanks for that info - really appreciate it.

I was hoping there might be some magic method you'd discovered where the finish would almost fall off (without damaging the rest of the g ...

Hi PoorMan!

I'd be very interested to hear some more about how the finish stripping is going - what you're using and how.

I've been thinking about about stripping my Orville LP (and seeing what' ...

Hi Dominik!

I've got a Stewmac/Gotoh Alu nickel TP waiting to be installed. You won't beat it for price, and it looks to be fairly true to the originals (the top profile being quite angled so that ...

Thanks anyway, Ochay!

I'm thinking about stripping (and having somebody refinish) my Orville LP sometime in the future. I'm pretty sure it's got a poly finish (it certainly doesn't look like the fi ...

Hi Ochay!

>>I have a buddy in Netherlands that did that and he also refinished in Nitrocellulose...

Hi Albert!

Well done. Looking forward to hearing more. Getting the SD 59 pup included was a good deal, I'd have thought. It's a very common upgrade for many LP owners. And getting a hard case sweet ...

Hi!

Hi Albert!

Sorry about the delay - I started to reply but the offer of that most rare thing beckoned (a free lunch!).

ArthurS has the twin sister to my Tokai - you can see it here in this thread ...

Hi Albert!

Looks like a Japanese Tokai to me. The truss rod cover is the right shape (I replaced mine with a Gibson one), the serial number looks like mine, the hardware looks like mine as well.
