Sims Custom Shop...

How much would it cost to have just the top of an LP covered in black tolex like this...

PM me, if you would.

Thanks in advance.

Man, I was going to say that sounds like a bad idea until I saw the picture. That looks pretty cool.

Re: Sims Custom Shop...

Hmmm, I have never done that so I really don't know A) How hard it would be B) How long it would take so I really wouldn't know C) how much to charge.

I want to do some of the Sims Custom Shop guitars in cool stuff like that & tweed, crocodile, etc.....but I haven't crossed that bridge yet. I like for when I do stuff for a customer to know what I'm doing and it not be the 1st time I've done something like that so I would prefer to not to do it on yours until I've tried it or something real similar on one of my own.....you always learn do's and don'ts the 1st time around. Unfortunatley I've got so much work right now I really don't know when I'll have time to do some experimenting or stuff of my own. You may want to try and find somebody else to do it if your wanting it fairly soon.

Thanks alot though for the inquiry.

Patrick

That's what I thought, but I wanted to ask anyway. At any rate, I'd still rather have it done by a pro because I don't trust myself to get it just right.

Thanks for the link. Im DROOLING over these. I love the modified Bigsby trem arm and the 5 way knob. I may have to look into their gear more now because I sure do like what I see

Tremolo as in whammy bar or tremolo as in effect commonly found on vintage Fender amps?
