What Next!?!?

Hey guys just stripped my squier strat right down to wood. There are a few chips in the wood I made during the process so what should I do to fill them? Also after I fill them what next and how do I do it?

Woodfiller does well for small flaws, afterwards you need to find a matching paint and a good laquer. Remember to cover the parts that are not in a need of new paint.

But the thing I wanna know is, knowing as little about taking a guitar apart and fixing it as you apparently do... Why on earth did you dismantle your guitar?

Check the resource sticky links?

The painting / refinishing thread

For exactly that reason to learn more about it!

That's what I did and I learned a lot.

You can fill the dents but I prefer mine to stay the way they are because it looks cool.
So...order new pickups if you want, or a new pickguard, upgrade it somehow! Now is the time.
Or buy that guitar cleaning shenanigans kit and use that.

Then learn what all the parts are and put it back together.

Roc8995, while we are at it we might as well remove the sticky links that are filled with information that contains gold, as no one actually seems to be bothered enough to use them.

Instead, we can just revert to continual rehashing of new threads all with the same questions over and over but worded as if no one ever before has encountered the same issue.

It would be ideal to link people to the sticky and then have the thread closed. If it's not closed, then you have guys like the TS that can't be bothered to read the sticky(even after it was linked ) and wants it explained to him in his own thread
