  • Gibson (Racoon) Flying V

    A one of a kind Flying V which was curiously chewed on by racoons before arriving in the shop. This was in for a refinish and new wiring harness. The bare wood was stained slightly darker than the original timber and clear coated with nitro. The wiring harness now has an additional tone pot and the jack has been relocated to the side of the body.
