Wow, somebody's putting a Kahler in a Bound & Crowned. Hmm, looks like a 1980 if I'm not mistaken. Beautiful top, too.

Bet there'll be some major bitchin' (in addition to Bubs) on the ol' boards tonight...

So, someone in THIS fucking millenium had you rout a vintage Sunburst for a Kahler.

Is that what you're telling me??

well, was not easy for me to take the router to it, and I have done it before many moons ago. And have de kahlered a few.

But, it is the clients wish. The clients guitar. I respect that.

cherry red, like the backs of those Sunbursts? I just can't envision it, although that is one of my favorite trans reds.

Toby, yeah. If have to say publicly, yes. Seeing the black top, with the black binding and the cheater scrape. A trans red would set if off the hook.

Come take a look sometime, its curing a bit.

It's taken 26 years, but I suddenly feel vindicated. :lol: Me likey. There - I said it.

Guess mine wasn't "vintage" at the time. Just "Modern-Vintage".

Not something I would want to do to a nice looking Burst (not a particular fan/user of any trems) but it already has a damaged neck socket which means it's lost a whole heap of it's value anyway so if thats what the owner wants to do it's his call.

Regardless of what people think about the Kahler, I'll add that that is one of the most beautiful sunburst jobs I've seen on a Sunburst.

Nice!

I also get a little tingly feeling when Jay says "custom work"...

:D

I agree.

All the more reason not to screw a 4"x4" hunk of shit on top of it.

Neck break or not, that's going too far.

I refuse to install Kahlers on vintage guitars....period. HACKERY.

I love ya, Jay, but that's just wrong.

I wouldn't kahler a guitar either, but that's for the customer to judge, not you.

Hawaiian, BBQ, Chicken Pizza is awsome! Didn't Greg put a wraptail on a Sunburst (Aceburst)? Its a different bridge but the same kinda mod none the less. Hell I like to rip the Dimarzio's out and put Duncan's in. Its not original but it works for me. It pains me to see that happen to a Sunburst but its not my call.

Sometimes, small business owners have to make difficult decisions. Ultimately, it boils down to this:
