BadMojo specializes in vintage Les Paul and Gibson finishes. We can make your Gibson look like they did in the days of Ted McCarty. We use only the best old school nitro and hand mixed aniline dyes. Because we mix all our own colors we can make different variations of a color to represent fading and aging. We offer three vintage distressing options LIGHT, MEDIUM and HEAVY. Please see below for a more details.
Aged White (yellow tint)
Dirty Lemon Burst
Iced Tea Burst
The Les Paul Makeover
BadMojo Vintage Makeovers uses a vintage correct 'Les Paul Model' silkscreen and Serial Number stamp. Both silkscreen and serial number stamp are the exact font, typeface and size that was used on the beloved Les Pauls of the 50s and 60s.
We use hand mixed vintage correct aniline dyes, old school nitrocellulose lacquer, and lacquer pigments on our Les Paul Makeovers. Our vintage correct aniline dyes will fade over time when exposed to UV light, just like the original bursts.
Vintage upgrades are available for your Les Paul such as; Cellulose Nitrate Inlays, Nylon Nut, Holly Headstock Veneer, Headstock Stinger and Mother of Pearl "Gibson" logo.
