Hey gang, I have come to the decision that I will be sending my FBJ ME1 into the PTC to have it glossified. Need to sell some gear that is just sitting before I can swing it, but in the mean time I'd love to see what you got out there. I started doing it myself, but I simply don't have the time or the necessary skills to get it to meet my (and PRS) general standards. I have no bad feelings of starting it myself since I much prefer glossy, so it's too late to step back.

AFTER: Only the upper half of the top is done.

Not sure if you can really tell, but it has also faded quite a bit. Just like real blue jeans. I may do a complete refinish, but I know that would cost a lot more. Will likely leave that part as is.

Lastly a phone pic of the fade:

Here are a couple that PTC did (and very nicely I might add):

And one that was done elsewhere (before I became the proud owner):

Not an ME-1....but I had my '08 PS Santana that had been originally finished in ME flat "glossified" by PTC when I had it refinished in nitro.

Here is a glamor shot, taken from the PRS Archives at the VR forum.
