I’ve sort of learned to put my own guitar together and learned to do full setups, before I can even play. Slightly weird way to do things but I wanted to get to know the workings of the guitar to make it better to play. This is my first full restoration from a crappy £25 guitar, which was in a right mess. I’d recommend this to anyone…it’s a great learning process and all the info is on youtube
Upgraded with new electronics, Alnico V pickups and machine heads. Refinished in metallic blue.
Well done I am might impressed that you managed to cover very dark colour with such a nice blue paint. I am wondering if you needed to scrape the old paint off first to the wood or just sanded it and covered in blue?
Thanks for info I find this DIY guitar revamps very interesting and if only time allowed me to look into this more in depth I would be jumping on it straight away. Btw how much time in total it all took you more or less?
