Hey guys and gals, I'm stoked because I just picked up an old Hondo II LP-2B Les Paul style guitar for free from a friend. It's in pretty poor shape and he was too lazy to really do anything with it. I've been wanting to rebuild a guitar for quite a long time though and thought this would be a perfect opportunity. After some cleaning and some replacement of parts it should be quite the guitar. I do have some queries on what parts will actually fit on it. Anyone know if parts that will fit on a normal Gibson or Epiphone will fit on a Hondo Copy? And if not which ones will? Also, if anyone has any recommendations for good parts to buy I would appreciate it. Going for a classic black with gold hardware look.
You need to do some deep research on that model's specs. I agree that Black with Gold hardware would rock! My Edwards LP:
Awww, sweet; that thing looks beautiful! Almost exactly the look I'm going for, too.
If you're patient, you can do a faux binding using paint and lots of masking, or just the pinstriping tape from most auto supply stores.
You mean to paint the existing hardware gold? Or just to make my guitar look badass?
