That's much better, man! I'm far behind you then I see. I have all those hard edges and curves left to sand!

Good job so far!

Hello all, I just got my guitar dismantled because I'm planning on giving it a new paintjob. I have a pretty good idea of how to do it but i was wondering if anyone here has any experience with painting guitars. I'm also thinking about getting some new pickups for it sinse its already dismantled. I'm thinking of getting some emg pickups but I'm not an expert at pickups so I'm up for suggestions.

heres a picture of it right now. and no those dents/scratches were not caused by me. I bought it used about a year ago.





I will greatly appreciate any suggestions/advice ya'll have for me! biggrin.gif
