Can you tell me what you think of Barefuss pups in general? Build quality, tone?
THANX, jacco!

I?m a true fan of DAVID BARFUSS pickups! The 'Greeny-Blues'-Set is my favorite PAF-type set. They?re perfect for my 32 year old FRESHER Les Paul. Bridge & neck-PU have all the attributes a good PAF should deliver. The 'out-of-phase'-option is the i-dot of this awesome set. Each PU is handmade first quality, absolutely perfect craftmanship! My custom-made ?52-reissue P-90s set is made considering some guidelines (I sent some tone-examples of Sean Costello...), the result is KILLER! He nailt it! The complete D.BARFUSS-Stuff is on the high-quality/medium price-range. The price performance ratio is PERFECT!

I used this 3M 'reconditioning-sponge' (Pic 1) for car paint. It took some serious time but the result is great.
I'm impressed and curious.

Could you explain ?
Where can I find this sponge?
What took so long?

@ Max The Dog: THANX!!

@ cosmitron 2: Use the finest you can find, use it soft & wet with vortexes/circling action. Inspect within the process.

GOOD LUCK! Please show some pics of the result!

Regards,
Ralf

Superb and nice and subtle (though not too subtle) aging/relicing job there on the Edwards Goldtop! I must investigate these aging techniques for one of my guitars... now which one??

Thanx for your compliments, Mole Man!

Please don?t use these techniques on older TOKAI, GRECO, BURNY and on guitars. It?s the (my) way to make a newer poly-gloss-finish look 'older' or 'vintage'. If I can help, please ask.

Regards,
Ralf
