I guess this is phase one of my 7 String put together/build.

The neck just came in the mail and I will be doing updates as I get hardware.

(Planned) Specs:

AANJ 7 String 24 Fret Neck
RG7620 Body
Lo-Pro 7 String Floyd
BKP Painkiller or other
Gotoh Tuners

Knobs, wiring, and all that will be last.

I also plan on doing a swirl job to it. Since this is going to have all black hardware give me some ideas on some colors I could do for a swirl job.

Oh, right pics!

Alright well the body finally came in and ugh didn't think it was gonna be this bad but I am refinishing it so I guess it doesn't matter.





Wait what's that at the bottom right corner?





I really hate stickers on guitars but O well once it's sanded down I won't have to worry about it.





Once again..I hate stickers..







I've been trying to think about what to do with the last to pictures. I might put some filler in the gashes and sand it down nice and smooth.

I'll get to work on this in a while.

That sticker looks ridiculous! That aside, this looks like it'll be pretty cool, I'll be reading this thread.

As for the colors, maybe a green/white swirl? One of the colors should definitely be a neutral color like gray/white/black/etc, otherwise it might look too tacky (unless of course that's what you're going for). I was thinking black, but then I saw you'd be doing all black hardware.

And those gashes don't look too deep to me. It seems like sanding would basically get rid of them, but if it doesn't, I guess filler should work.

Well the second to last picture the chip is like hanging from the gash. It's hard to explain. I need a higher quality camera to show how they really look. I'll see what i can do. I don't really like green, one of my least favorite colors. I'm thinking white will be by neutral I might do white and two different shades of blues.

Alright cool. Thanks for some confirmation.

I managed to get the sticker off. Thank god lol. I got neck screws in now I'm just waiting for the ferrules to get here.

Neck on my list is a lo-pro bridge. I got tuners coming too.

Also I know this has been asked a million and one times but can anyone link me to a good swirl tutorial? I also need to know what works best. I have borax here but I just need to know what paints usually work the best with swirling.

Pics cause everyone likes them.

^ depends on what wood is used. When I'm done sanding it down I'll see some other options.

^ Yeah I looked at them. I think I'm gonna work on some swirls.

BTW that is a cool paint job. I like the circle around the bridge and pup.

Don't mean to bump this but just wondering. All I have to do is sand the clear coat off and get it pretty rough right? I'm not doing a wood finish. I was going to get a couple coats of primer on it but I just need to know this.

^ thanks for the advice.

I'm starting to remember how much I hated sanding.

First ever refinish.


Looking back at it. It sucked. But I remember all the time I spent actually getting to the wood. WHYYY lol.

Well what ever.
