Matted the finish on my Jackson PS-4 last night...

Picked up a cheap shredder last year at the Philly Show - a purple metallic Jackson PS-4 with a bad ding on the back. Part of the socket on the import Floyd trem arm was stripped out, too. Anyway - fixed the Floyd last month with JB Weld. It's held up very well. The paint had some scratches in the clear coat, so I decided to conduct a learning experience and hit it with rubbing compound.


That did not fix the problem. Not at all.


So with a chunk of the finish on the face being seriously dicked up, I decided to take it a step further, and matte the entire body. After several hours with 1000 grit, and then 1500 grit, here is the result:




It looks like a Concord grape. I need to go over it some more, but I think it looks great. This is what it used to look like:




And here are some Concord grapes for comparison:
