    Oops, I may have buffed a Majesty

    and also installed DiMarzio Illuminators with a JP toggle! This was done by request on an out-of-warranty guitar.

    After a very quick cut and buff the matte finish SBMM Majesty came to a nice gloss. Since this procedure is going to gloss right from a textured finish without being sanded smooth there are some small imperfections from the low spots in the matte when you get up close. I was very impressed with how nicely this one responded to the buffing wheel.

    Don't be afraid to make your guitar work for you!

    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    Pete, I like the gloss finish and actually prefer it to the matte.

    I should be taking the '68 on its maiden voyage in 2-3 hours if all goes well after work - it has been a 14yr project with life getting in the way of having fun! It doesn't have racing stripes (yet) but I'll be taking it on a few roadrace tracks this summer.

    Back on topic, I used the extra buffing products from the car for this guitar and it worked like a charm.

    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.
