Finally finished and delivered, the Aristocrat was a serous challenge. Every bit of binding has been replaced. All the neck inlays have been replaced. The top around the binding has been refinished and then everything, I mean everything was aged to match the wear on the body parts that were not updated. This meant yellowing the new binding and inlays so they looked as if they were from the 50's. The Client had the pickups potted during the restoration process so when I had this baby assembled and rewired I had to play on it. She's got a nice low action and comfortable neck. Best of all she sounds Just like a girl her age should, Great!
