So, i bought this old vintage guitar, back at a yard sale for 50 bucks, paint was bad, y'know typical stuff.

but recently i got the idea to make it look better than ever.

so i'll put up my steps, and pictures to show you how it's all going along.

so i started sanding down the guitar, since it had this cheap acrylic coating on it, and now here is where im at.



how far should i sand it down?

Is that a chip in the guitar from when you removed the bridge?

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

i i don't think it was there, but the wood was coming up when i started sanding, and it flew off.

i can probably, leave is be, since i haven't decided what to do with it.

i need a theme, and im thinking vintage car.
