Is the body/neck on the affinity series ok for upgrades? i was thinking of doing an ss build, but i'm short on tools at home, as well as time for doing the whole body. i'd sand all of it down and buy dimarzios and slap some new hardware on er etc.. decent idea?

I'm in the middle of an Affinity strip and refin, the wood isn't exactly the most beautiful but everything seems sturdy and it was very comfortable to play before hand.

Beware of the miles-thick poly!

Well luckily enough I work at a hotel that is in the middle of some major remodeling, including all of the wooden entertainment centers in each room being hacked in half in refinished. So I just walked up to these guys and explained what I was doing and they're going to mix up whatever color I want!

So, I'm deciding between butterscotch and white. Since the wood is not the prettiest and the poly is being a little redheaded stepchild, I think I'm going to make it completely opaque no matter what.

I've gone through a can and a half of Citristripper, 3 sheets of 150-grit sandpaper, one 320-grit sand sponge, and two synthetic plastic-steel-wool sponges and I'm not quite done. It has been a lot of work, but so much fun!

Its maple, and its already been tinted and nitro'd. Very vintage-y vibe going for it.
