A Little Restoration And Refurb Project - First Timer Too!

Ok I had a little accident yesterday with my guitar and cracked the headstock off :D It's only a £250/$500 guitar so I'm not too annoyed! Though it did play really nicely.

I'm going to repair that with some wood glue and a ratchet strap to apply some gentle pressure as it dries. Once it set, I'm going to remove all the clear varnish and then give the guitar a more contoured shape, something along the lines of an Ibanez JS. It's then going to be an oiled natural finish.

Any tips would be great as I've not done this sort of thing to a guitar before!
