    Refinished guitars

    I posted this in the ebay/craigslist thread, and I think the colour is stunning. It also looks like the guy with the spray gun knew what he (or she) was doing. Some of the hardware must have been changed too, as it's a mix of chrome and matte black. I really, really dig it and if I was in the market for (another) L3, this would be very high on my list despite the usual frowning upon refinished instruments...

    Have any of you seen refinished EBMM guitars (preferably cool) that you wanna share?

    I’d buy a refinished instrument - I like custom colors and good refinishers are worth their weight in gold. Look at the job Marty Bell did on @MagicJason Albert MM90

    Love it! I'm thinking of getting one of mine done at the moment, I just can't seem to decide on the color. That one looks great!

    I just love my refinished ALMM90. It looks every bit as good as a factory finish. Just a hundred times better

    And I've just sent a second guitar to Marty Bell for a sparkle pink refinish. A lighter shade than this L3 though.

    I'd jump on this L3 for 2000 € (HSS/rosewood neck combo cannot be beaten.)

    Red will be refinished.

    And I have received a custom pickguard made with the last scrap of "white ice" material left in the world (according to Chandler lol)

    It will be stunning!

    White ice is the best pick guard ever @magicjason
    I wonder why it is so scarce.
    Glad I stocked up for my Cutlasses. Got SSS and HSS in white ice and a SSS in black ice

    Marty sent me small samples of 3 different shades of sparkle pink. As I did for my turquoize, I'll go with a mix of colors. 27p, 44p and 54p.
