serial number restoration

Recommended Posts

I sent my old Thunderbird Bass to Gibson for restoration. It came back looking, playing and sounding great. My only issue is that

they painted over the serial number. I can see part but not all of it. Does anyone know a good way to restore the serial number

as it was originally. It is stamped into the back of the headstock.

He's right..

The only way to get it back to "As Original" would be to strip it before the refinish as I did to this one with headstock break..


I wouldn't worry about it at all BUT in case you ever sell it KEEP the invoice from Gibson where/when you got the refinish done..
