Copper bronze additive to Gold top paint


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the answer as to when Gibson discontinued adding copper or bronze to the gold top finish?



It is certainly bronze. They certainly used it thru the Norlin days. Recently saw a beatup 1974 that had that nice green hue only the Bronze can produce. So it's pretty recent that they switched over to mica.


I *DO* know, however, that you can get the original forumla, and it's amazing!!
