325 surprise for Xmas

Postby (glen_l) » Sun Dec 23, 2001 8:04 pm

For the last few months I've had my black re-finished '64 325 (Rose Morris export model) in pieces wondering how I could go about getting it back to the original fireglo. Over the holidays I finally got the courage to try a method of removing refinish without taking off the original Ric paintwork, that was described to me by a luthier friend. I was pretty doubtful but it actually worked astoundingly well. Fortunately the original finish was only lightly sanded then undercoated. After a polish up, and the original parts put back in place, the Fireglo is back and looking great. I still keep going back to look at it in disbelief....

Glen: Truly the best ornament you could have next to your tree this Christmas. Merry Christmas and congratulations on a great job.

A rare prize, indeed, Glen!

Is that an angel, dancing on the headstock?

Merry Christmas to All!
