      If there was a gold undercoat that sounds like a Candy Apple Red more than Wine Red. (Wait, isn't Candy Apple Red red over silver metallic?)

      My guess on the repair: $599

      Do they really mean if you don't pay they'll send it to be burned for firewood?

        CAR was originally trans red over silver. Fender switched to trans red over gold for candy apple red sometime around 1965. I'm not sure that Gibson has ever done a lot of stuff in CAR - wine red and cherry red are far more common on Gibsons.

      No, it was a wine red, darker than candy apple.

      I'm exaggerating but they did say 30 days to pay after complete or they would sell the instrument. Can you just see Ethiopians huddled around burning explorers and SGs?

        Their doing a re-fret as well?
        $75.00 to evaluate?
        After hearing about Gibson pricing, I'll venture to guess $2500.00+ - a few $s.

            I won't know what they're willing to do until the evaluation. I'm hoping > 1K, but 599 sounds great!

              Thanks, it's a very heavy guitar, ain't no weight relief on this one.

              It still plays pretty good, and it has a ton of sentimental value to me. I'll probably be buried with this one.

              Now, if you're not above grave robbing...

                    Considering they won't stop factory prodution to repair it, and probably the other team is the Custom team I would say 2500+ is about right.


                    Why not take it to a luthier, you know, a guy who can actually do a refret.

                      Looked quite a bit lighter than wine red in the cavity. Or is the dark color on the sides the original color?

                      What is this something that is the prize?

                          I guess my main goal is the painting and finishing, the re-fret is a 'might as well get it done so i can play it when it comes back' thought.

                          Hopefully they'll itemize my request and I can determine which services I want gibson to do and which I can get locally.

                          They do seem to be soliciting for all kinds of repair work, not neccesarily custom shop type stuff:

                          The "prize" was a joke, sorry, I didn't think anyone would take that seriously. I'll amend my OP.
