Pickups are fairly robust, so it's most likely to be an issue elsewhere. Check for loose wires, bad contacts at the switch and bad pots.

How do you feel about leaves and nature?



Thanks man. God knows it's the easy part.

Something like 2K clear is an option if you use respiratory protection and work carefully. Tru Oil is definitely the easiest, then 2K is harder to get right.

If you want to get that top back into shape, you're going to need to steam it. It'll probably have to be from the inside too. You'd risk damaging the finish and compromising the glue that's holding...

Tru Oil would definitely work, but it soaks into the wood and would stop it taking a stain. You'd have to sand through as deep as the oil has soaked in, which would be a lot in mahogany.

The Halfords paints aren't amazing, but they'll certainly do the job. The nozzles on the cans aren't great though. They like to get clogged up and start spitting.

High-five!

It looks like you've got a decent kit there. You're probably lucky to only have a couple of chips to deal with. Sonic blue would look awesome too.
