icetrey Posted July 8, 2010 Report Share Posted July 8, 2010 (edited) I've fixing a guitar for a buddy of mine that had a tremolo on it but broke. I'm installing a Floyd Rose for him but it needs some routing. My dad has a router and I've already ordered the bit and template from StewMac. My question is, when routing a body that already been painted is it likely the paint could chip off in places? Are there any precautions I should take? I've worked on guitars, painted a few, and done maintenance for a good while now. I've never routed though, figure I have to start somewhere though. And also, it'll need a little routing on the headstock for the nut. Is there a template or another post talking about that. I couldn't find one. I guess knowing the guitar could help but I'm actually not sure what it is. It says Epiphone By Gibson on the headstock. Has a Strat style pickguard and two humbuckers. Never seen one like it before. Thanks. Edited July 8, 2010 by icetrey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
