Purchased a 1982 Series 1, which had been refinished (by Alembic) in BLACK, harware chromed, and tuners changed. Needless to say, the price was right.
Recently had it refinished and thought you might be amused by the transformation:

Welcome to the club, Barry. Nice piece of wood under there. Did you have any idea before stripping the black off?

yes I had some idea. I had emailed Mica with the serial number, and she told me about the black refinish, and that there was good stuff under it. Alembic tried to put on a semi transparent finish, but you could only just see there was birds eye under there with very bright light.
Needless to say, I am pleased with the result.

One of the benefits of not applying dye to the wood.

Who did the work? It looks great! I just got a 60s EB-0 as a vehicle for some Dark Star pickups and it's an utter mess.

I think it looks cool black, but the natural is even better!
