    Sergio, it looks fantastic!

    I wonder if covering a guitar in cloth will affect the tone? Now that you're doing it, you'll be in a position to know. I'd love to find out, could be interesting.

    I have to admit, I looked at the material, I looked at the guitar and I was all:



    But now that I'm seeing it, the red binding with the designs on the fabric, I'm all:

    Dude! Totally! I'm lookin' at all my extra fabric and I'm lookin' at everything in the house thinkin; "What would that look like in Gucci print?" I'm tempted to make a faux roll of toilet paper for when company comes by.

    I'm wondering about that too.
    This guitar was surprisingly brighter acoustically than I had anticipated, so if it does have an effect on tone it may be beneficial for my preferences.




    I will have a few more updates today, along with a quick post of how I was able to recondition the fabric. I did some more work on the guitar last evening and I am getting super excited! I feel like I may have trouble topping this one for the third installment.
    Thanks for all the support guys!!!

    If I covered my pedalboard cases in Coach fabric, maybe my girlfriend would actually want to help carry some gear, rather than feeling obligated to do so. I give her the out at every show; she insists on carrying something, even though I know she doesn't want to and it can't be easy lugging stuff around in heels. But with a "Coach" case, I could be all "Look honey...I got a new piece of gear and it matches your purse!"

    Wait...is that a good thing or a bad thing???

    Nick might have to rethink his signature guitar after seeing Sergio's Gangta Gucci model.

    Gucci Gucci!















    There is even a hidden compartment for my stash of chronic!






    I still have a few random adhesive spots and scratches to buff out, but overall I'm psyched!
