Aging an Epiphone Les Paul SL

Just ordered the guitar, will take a week or so to get here, but this is our chance to play with some color finishes, and do so on the cheap.  These are actually popular little guitars for modders and the least expensive “Les Paul” ever made.  $99 including shipping from Musicians Friend.  The goal is to pull the neck and bridge off and age everything else for a couple of weeks.  Want to see if it will fade the color back, check the urethane finish or what.  We break stuff so you don’t have to.

I have some other colors planned, but one thing at a time, and I want to see if I can catch some others on sale, maybe a yellow and a red guitar.

As of today, there isn’t much on the page, but that will be changing soon.  You will be able to keep up with the process at http://www.solacure.com/lespauls.html
