Inspired by ‘55 “aged gloss ebony”

Recommended Posts

As you might presume from the title I have an Inspired by ‘55 LPC and aside from the fret ends the guitar is great. I just don’t like the look of the finish. Has anyone tried, or does anyone know, if the “aged gloss” (matte) finish can be buffed to a true gloss?

I've heard of others doing it on an AJ45.... carefully.
