Mollie Jones Posted August 28, 2007 Report Share Posted August 28, 2007 Hey folks, About five years ago I inherited a funky old, poorly sanded-down beat to crap old squier. My brother & I laughed and talked about painting it up & refinishing it, I started some art on the body, but life took over and it got stowed til the first of this year. Since then I've finished the art on it and would like to put a top coat on it. I've also become really intimate with HOW crappy the sand job was on the piece when I got it, and naturally I didn't do anything put start to draw on it. So, it's thicker & thinner all over with some funky kind of divits around the curves. I plan on fitting it out with new hardware & the like either way, so I suppose my question is: Will the crappy shape of the body seriously affect the final product? Should I just put economy parts in it so it will play, or would it be worth putting dream hardware in. It's a novelty all around, but if I could make it a really sweet novelty, I will. Thanks for your patience & understanding, as obviously I've stumbled into this parallel hobby and am not exactly starting from a delicious stack of wood. -mollie jones.
