alright, i have bought a used squire p bass off of a buddy. i plan to referbish it. i'm gonna stick with the color it has. but it has some dings and cracks i'm gonna fix. i'm gonna paint the pick gaurd yellow, like he tried to, so basically what i'm doin is giving it a fresh coat of paint, fixing imperfections, and basically staying true to how i bought it.

now, i removed a good portion of the stickers(we're both punks and he did this when he was younger) but i'm tring to find somthing to clean the glue residue off the body, can anyone help me out with this? also how would i go about finding the shade of paint the factory used?

this is what i've done tonight:



is there a way to clean the pickup poles(the magnets)?

Is it the "Standard" series? My brother has one and it's fantastic for the price he paid for it (£60).

You might benefit from new pickups. Just a thought.

I was thinking that. But I play distorted/fuzzed all the time, so I wasn't sure what would be good.

cleaned the sticker/glue residue of the body.



got a few chips on the body.



gonna strip it down and reseal it(possibly) and paint it the same color. what's the easiest way to clean fretboard grime?

Fretboard clean, thanks to some 0000 steel wool.


Took the rest of the stickers off of the pick gaurd and sanded it with some 320 to take the yellow off. Now its ready to prime.


hopefully my next task is to replace the tuning pegs/machines.

For cleaning the fretboard you should have used lemon oil.
