Lucy's Wheelchair appeal

I know this is not guitar related but could I ask you to take a little time to look at this site : LUCY'S WHEELCHAIR APPEAL. Lucy is the daughter of a friend of ours and desperately needs help in being able to purchase this power chair. Donations can be made through the site no matter how small and would be greatly appreciated. - Thankyou

Original 50's Cellulose Nitrate Inlays

From the same manufacturer in the 50's Now for the first time in over four decades ! Real Cellulose Nitrate inlays with a pattern that is dead on to the patterns seen in most Les Pauls from the 1950's. This material will have the same distinctive pattern as seen on most Les Paul's from 1957 thru 1960. The thickness is 0.070" with the pattern running through the material to allow for sanding.
Working with the original manufacture that supplied this material back in the 1950's, we were able to confirm the pattern style they used in the 1950's and specify the color and thickness needed. There are 2 different shapes of inlays. One shape for current Historic Les Paul trapezoids and the other a vintage trapezoid shape for older Les Paul's & SG model guitars.

Getting there

I'm finally happy with the white blond and now ready to clear lacquer, just need the snow to go. Guess it'll be a while before it'll be warm enough to get in the garage
