I recently found this site and decided that since I needed a back up guitar I would buy a cheapie and do some work on it.
I bought a washburn that has 2 single coils and a humbucker, 1 volume, 1 tone, and a 5 way blade type switch.
I want to refinish the guitar and I have someone lined up to do some custome graphics.
I want to go with a single humbucker with a volume control only. Does anyone have any ideas of what to fill the single coil holes and other extra holes with? I was thinking of glueing a small block inside the electronics cavity and tremolo hole but I am unsure of filler material that will not look bad when sanded and painted and also possibly add to the tonal qualities of the guitar. The guitar has a basswood body, and I plan to drop a SD screaming demon into it. I also am thinking of going with a tune 'o matic bridge. The guitar had a 'vintage' tremolo and I have a floyd rose I am debating about putting into it, but I would also need to do some filling if I go with a fixed bridge. I was also thinking of filling the biggest part of the pickup holes wood blocks but am unsure of the filler material.
Any help or resources greatly appreciated!
