Eh. I say go for it, but don't go trying to mask it all up as if it gives you some technical or tone advantage. We all know it doesn't.

If you got the money just do what you want, man.

Rob is right. If the top photo is what it looks like now, the guitar top needs lots more sanding. The black may be gone, but there is still a hint of undercoat and what looks like filler.

Nice one Minty.

I get almost as much enjoyment from restoring and modding as I do actually playing the end result.

Will keep an eye on this one. Has great potential.

That would be it then. Process of elimination yields a result. Sounds like you need to source a new pickup or just go with one.

Agree. Nice thin coats. 10 - 12 of them for clear coats, as you will remove some when sanding and buffing to the final finish.

Whatever makes you happy :)

But either way that paint job will continue to deteriorate. What would make me happy if it was mine is nothing short of a complete strip and redo.

But to each their own.

Looks great!! Very different. I respect that.

Is it heavy? Hard to balance with all that liquid sloshing about?

Can it squirt liquid into the crowd while you're doing a solo?

That's rock and roll

How high is the action and how much relief do you have. A high action and excess relief can contribute to intonation issues.

Also is the kit a fixed bridge or with trem bar?
