  1. ok, im getting conflicing answers...but for sure not normal wood filler? and if not, how much would some of this epoxy, or putty run me and could i get it at like a home depot?
  2. alright update, i know nitefly, you said that the coats on ibanez are thick, but ive been using a palm sander for about 2.5 hours and i havent seen any grain at all. the paint is off but now its this pale, pale red that looks like part of the finish...i also can see from the chip that until i for sure hit grain, ill have to sand another couple mm's. do i need to hit grain before i can refinish?
  3. okay. and if im planning on refinishing everything electronics, hardware...should i get rid of the electrical paint in the cavities, and use electrical tape when i refinish, or should i leave it?
  4. okay, ive asked this question a bunch of times and never really gotten a straight up answer so here it goes... im refinishing an ibanez rg and it has some decent half dollar sized chips in it...theyre not extensively deep, but i can definately see wood. theres also little cracks everywhere as well...would it be wise to use your standard wood filler to fix these up when i refinish, or is that a bad idea?
  5. its 15-30 minutes...but my dad was wondering, on this rg theres almost a "laminate" coat on top that isnt getting touched by the stripper...is that something that most guitars have, or something else?
  6. yeah and it did nothing at all...we have a heater on it because its about 40 degrees outside, but were also in the garage which is warmer, but its not terribly cold either. and are all strippers gel?
  7. okay, so im refinishing an old rg body i have, and it has a couple chips here and there and whatnot, but im trying to strip it using a gel/chemical but its not having any effect. its been on for 30 minutes and it hasnt shown any sign of working. is there something im doing wrong?
  8. i just realized what you said... i dont think there was any filler used. what i was asking is if filler would be nesescary when i refinished it. or maybe i just dont understand what youre telling me...
  9. okay, so i asked this in the finish/inlay section and got a little help but nothing worked... im refinishing an ibanez rg and had an idea that id really like to do: id like to paint it straight white, but then on the front, somehow( paint, spraypaint, something) put all of my favorite lyrics line after line in a light metallic blue. my handwriting, however is terrible, and im sure my painting is worse. someone suggested typing it out and then cutting it out to make a stencil, but i had to make the words so big, it didnt work the way i wanted it to. any ideas?
  10. okay i think i found the tutorial you told me about...it seems like theres wayyy way way too many ways i could seriously screw something up, and i dont think it will work if im guna just try to do line after line after line. and i tried like a line of cutting out the letters, and i had to make the font/size so big, it sort of defeated the purpose. i dont want the letters to be 12 pt, but i dont want like, 30, either. i was wondering if theres a way to type something up, and send it somewhere to be cut out, or...something? maybe theres an easier way, i just dont know...
  11. okay ill give that a whirl. and the other problem i had(besides pickup selection and electronics) is the tuners all say 10.5 mm diameter on it, and for the tuner holes i have now, its 8mm. can i just drill it to be 10.5, or will that cause issues?
  12. okay. and will the fracture by the volume just go away when i sand everything down and refinish?
  13. i have cubase, it works quite well... however with the modeling i cant help you much. theres some software called amplitube 2 which got a g1 award, so im assuming its good. but i dont think you can just plug in and use them. you might wanna check it out for recording into a pc though?
  14. awesome. so in regards to the chips then, the filler is a go to use?
