Custom Shop VOS finish like or dislike

Recommended Posts

I think gibson custom shop does a great job at the VOS finish. I prefer it over glossy. The only thing I would like to see them do is age the pickguards. Seems they overlook them (looks like a new pickguard on a 50 year old guitar).

Agreed.

I left the pickguard off my 1960 VOS.

I don't tend to beat on that area of the guitar and it just hides the beautiful wood.

...........You want to age or dull out the pickguard you can take steel wool 0000 grit and buff the guard in circular motions,

It will take the glosss of it.

I don't mind them, EXCEPT...on the "SG" Les Pauls. They (often) look too faded and/or "Orange-ish," in color.

But, I DO love the beveling and scarfing, on the VOS SG's.

I don't like VOS. These are fakes "vintage" like relics.

 

not really. a relic will have the finish dinged, scuffed, faded and sanded down. the VOS is more like a film on top of the finish. using virtuoso and elbow grease, it will shine to near gloss.

Dont forget, over time the VOS finish will wear off the body contact points.....ie. where your forearm rubs across the body.

Then, you will have a slight shine to the area where the VOS gunk once was.

 

I rubbed mine off with Virtuoso....no regrets, looks great.

I cleaned my R0 Ebony vos the day after i got it . didn't like it but the price was right. I think a new guitar should look new . imo.
