Rockhorst Posted December 29, 2008 Report Share Posted December 29, 2008 I'm new here (long time reader of PG though), so first of all: hi to everyone! I'm a guitarbuilding newb (again, long time reader) and as a first project I decided to get a 2nd hand body that's been rather butchered internally and see if I can turn it into something half decent. I doubt if it's ever going to become a real guitar, even if I get a nice finish on it, just knowing what is underneath might stop me from that. Some pictures first: Why there's an extra deep slot around that center pickup rout is beyond me...Anyway, what I'm considering doing, for practice purposes: -strip the pink -fill the screw holes -put in some extra wood, like the trem to hardtail tutorial on PG. Maybe also install some extra wood in the pickupcavity, not sure if that's useful though (thoughts?). -refinish the body in a red or blue burst (the most essential skill I hope to acquire from this). again: this is a practice project to acquire some first woodworking and finishing skills. I do hope to get some comments on what is feasible and what's not...All suggestions welcome. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
