This morning I cleaned the binding channel and got the kahler patch flush with the rest of the top.

Through all this stuff the serial and logo are still there.

Now I just have to find time to veneer the top.

I may have a factory unused veneer in my stash, call me today. I know that I have a few for Sunburst/Specials, so I might have one for a Standard.

I'm getting the feeling this re-fin is gonna be bad-ass. Nice looking work so far.

Any decision on the finish yet?

Well I have two other cherry sunburst/59 burst Standards, so I think it's gonna be just ambered natural with a cherry back.

Can't wait to see the next step! By no means would I've imagined what the guitar really looked like when I saw the auction but now I'm just curious what's coming out of that restauration work. Bonne chance!

One of my favorite shades Hamer does. This is a 2001 Standard Custom. That is my Gloss Natural 2003 Dean Z Time Capsule in the first shot also.

Roy, that's great, inspiring work you're doing.

Bubs, as for the Zander Standard color, it was spec'd to match the book pic, in which the guitar is patina'd, hence the yellow.

Great work!

Whoever did that to that guitar should take a zebra's place in a lioness's jaws!

Ever considered doing another zebra refin?

Well it's been some time since the last update, so it's new top time.

Here is the body 100% ready for the new top.

Next I made a poster board template to test fit around the neck.

Next was to make an MDF clamping caul.

I pre-glued two layers of veneer and jointed them.

Then cut it slightly oversized.

Last part for today is it all glued up using hide glue.
