In our last article, Refinishing A PRS Custom 24 Part 1
, we detailed the removal of the guitar's cloudy green lacquer and extensive prep work for the big refinish -- entirely in nitrocellulose lacquer -- by luthier Luca Quacquarella.
In my humble opinion, our Italian friend really outdid himself on this particular job.
The following pics were taken by Reggie Tan at Luca's workshop on the day he went to pick up his newly refinished PRS.
As always, click on the pictures to enlarge. Enjoy!
