Yes, a scratch remover and a sponge polishing pad, hand job only.

 

Fast and easy.

What kind of scratch remover did you use?

Beautiful job. Looks like a Bonamassa now :)

 

I own the same guitar and am tempted to perform this operation.

 

How long did it take?

 

Do you do the whole body or just the top?

It is a very easy and very fast job, you can make a test on the back of the body .

The Les Paul Gold Top is perfect for me, now I have to polish for the last time and I will put a set of Custom pickup rings.

 

I use Dimarzio HB rings, they have same height than Gibson Custom Shop M69 rings and price is very soft [thumbup]

My mind is BLOWN! You just turned a budget Gibson into a fully blown, amazing custom. And all it took was some polishing and faux binding... Congrats on the idea![/QUOTE]

The alternative (and correct) perspective is - ruined.
