9MileSkid Posted December 17, 2010 Report Share Posted December 17, 2010 This is my first post to the forum. I have read through many posts in hopes to find and answer to this question prior to posting. I apologize if the question has previously been raised and answered. I am new to guitar refinishing and took on this project as something fun and new to try. Its has been that as well as therapeutic, in a way. I have a 1970's Japanese neck-through, Washburn Eagle copy. I stripped off the million layers of poly and hideous green stain to finally get it down to bare wood. After stripping and sanding, the body wing glue joints are intact and very solid. However, when it was built, it appears that the wings were not planed to be flush with the neck. So there is about a 1 MM void. I don't want to call it a crack because it appears that is was never fully joined. So, in your all's expert opinion(s), what type of material should be used to fill the void? I have used wood filler for other projects and don't really like working with the stuff (but would use it if it is the recommended material). Also, I have read many posts about the used of epoxy for grain filling. This is MUCH more than grain fill. I think it should also be stated that I didn't plan on repainting the guitar. I intend to finish it only with Tung oil. Thanks and I appreciate your responses in advance. http://picasaweb.google.com/10063525425131...GuitarRefinish# Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
