Red Queen

This is a replica of the ES-335 model made in China. This was my first repainting project. The original varnish was polyester, 2 mm thick. Apparently the guitar was made of old furniture, since the central block inside the deck was made from a piece of very old mahogany. It had a characteristic smell and marks of a wood worm. After refinishing with shellac and replacing all metal parts and pickups, it sounded like a piano. I was very surprised and pleased when my friend and I compared it with the original 1998 EU Gibson 335. I still dream of buying this instrument back, but so far its current owner has not given up))
