The_Crimson_Ghost Posted February 9, 2007 Report Share Posted February 9, 2007 (edited) Hi, like I said, i'm new to this forum (at least posting in it). I've been lurking around since a big two months. I'm going to be called The_Crimson_Ghost around here, but you can also call me Max. I thought i'd show you my first attempt at refinishing my guitar. The victim was my trusty ol' Squier Affinity Strat in Arctic White. It had a couple of deep dings in the finish so I thought I could make it a little more like I want it to be. I had never played a guitar with humbuckers equipped in it, so that might be something i'd like to get. I bought a prewired pickguard from GuitarFetish for 34$, a Les Paul rewiring kit and a new jackplate. Another thing also is that I wanted to be able to have a killswitch (à la Tom Morello). It's also a first at wiring (I think I have set the bar a little high, anyway). I wanted something to look cool. I think the finish I made is kind of reminiscent of the Jackson Custom Shop Model of the 80's. (which is kind of rockin') Here what I came up with... Here's the headstock Enough of this... The main reason I did this FIRST post is to know what you scientists at ProjectGuitar think of my choices for the first guitar electric or bass i'd build from the ground up. The building bug bit me I guess. I also got the book from Melvyn Hiscock (i know he posts on here sometimes) I've got three interesting models:Mosrite Mark 2 (Johnny Ramone)Yamaha EGV300Gibson EB-3Here's drawings of them The Yamaha i'll probably put a Bigsby Tremolo and 2 P-90. The other 2 guitars will probably be stock. I just want to know what model is the most unique. The one I would do (I think) is the Mosrite because those guitars have such a cool vibe. Mahogany Body Hard Rock Maple Neck Set neck Construction maybe bolt-on Probably GFS pickups & hardware White Body, black pickguard & maple headstock. Anyway, let me hear those comments (sorry for the poor grammar, typos, or weird sentence twist, i'm from Québec (if you'd like to know)) I hope to learn a lot from this forum. Bye & See Ya Edited February 9, 2007 by The_Crimson_Ghost Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
