1964 Gibson SG Special Restoration

This guitar must have taken a fall on the face and was luck to have not broken it’s headstock.  The damage caused by the fall was visible by a large chuck taken out of the face of the headstock.  The Gibson logo was missing the dot of it’s eye and part of the b.  After filling in the missing wood the proper inlays were cut out of matching pearl.  The face was then prepped for touch up. The black was applied, and a tinted clear coat after to make the blacks match.  Once the finish had setup it was aged to match the rest of the original finish on the guitar leaving an invisible repair.  This repair also increased the value of this vintage piece by not having any visible issues.
