I just got through hand sanding most of the paint of the front of my guitar for my refinishing project, BY HAND!! It took me about 2 maybe 3 hours to do the front and about a 1/4 or 1/3 of the back. I only stopped because I need more sand paper. Go me! So heres the other quesition, should I color it, like give it a sun burst, or go with a natural finish? I'm getting everything replaced on me because it's a crappy starter Drive with ****ty parts. Pots, neck, Pup's, etc. So what color?


This is it with the house finish on it that it came with.

Every single son of a bitch at the local guitar shop did. Said it would take a week atthe least. I only did this to prove a point to them, posting here was for color ideas... Because were going out to home depo today, maybe, to get more sandpaper.

And why? Because I like the body shape. I'm gonna thin it out a little, maybe make it look a little more like a strat. And like I said after I'm done nothing but the body will be stock, it'll all be new and nice.

I've hand sanded a couple guitars within a couple hours... it's not even close to impossible, just tedious.
mmmk.

i always hated that little horn thing on the left side of the guitar so i think it would be really cool if u made it into a les paul double cutaway look, but maybe u like it

Yeah, I'm gonna rough tit out a little more. And please people color ideas.
#8
If you like the shape why change it to look more like a Strat?

#9
I look some of the shape, not all of it. The horn makes it hard for me to hearch the lower frets, so I'm gonna rought it out a little or cut it off, other then that I like the shape.

EITHER GIVE ME COLOR IDEAS OR SHUT UP!!! Or Pup idea's, neck idea's, etc...
#10
Do NOT tell people to shut up if you like to stay here.

Anyways, I kinda like the shape too, just be absolutely sure you know what you're doing before you go ahead and just like, cut off a piece of wood or something.

I plan on doing a greenburst on a project strat of mine.
mmmk.
#11
Sorry man, I was kidding. I just asked for color idea's, not comments on the handsanding part. Kool, but I have a reservation aginist green, it makes me sick to the stoumch.

Would it be possible to jimmie on a strat neck? and how about a Purple and black paintjob?

YAY, were all making friends! what is the guitar body made of? does the grain look nice at all? if the grain looks good, then do a natural or sunburst finish, if not then do a solid color, for parts you can go on www.stewmac.com or www.guitarfetish.com and for paints you can go to www.reranch.com

how about blue but I dunno do I look like a mind reader? I just like blue. Although I think CA red or grey would look cool on that type of guitar.

Also the LP double ut might look good on that guitar it's just I had to go round a switch cavity on mine so that affected it's shape.

Ah. I think I'm gonna leave it as is, except for color. CA red would look good. How about Lake Placid Blue, like those old mustangs? And how about a strat pickguard? Would that work, does anyone think? (One of the HH "fat" style, not single style...)

I think a strat pickguard would be too big. But I like the LP blue idea If you do that then a pickguard would be cool but a white one and get white p/u's aswell. I think you should get a new neck aswell. That headstock is too much like a line6. but hey you don't have to listen to me, It's your guitar.

Yeah, but I've got no eye for color or design. But yeah, I'm gonna go with the Lake Placid Blue, And try and get a strat pickguard and see if it'll fit, and it not if I can make it fit...

Well we can agree on one thing, satan and god do not exist. I only used that refrence because it works to rile the general population. Prove your not. And I don't give a ****. You act like a nazi, bash people you don't even know, and like Dragonforce. thats just lame. Symphone X, thats good modern metal there.

And the flag, is only there because my america loving moron of a mom put it there.Notice the big gash in it?

yes but he said that just because he is an american he would be ugly. Plus a lot of people (not everyone- me, for instance) is a stupid nationalist dickhead who thinks asians, muslims, americans, french poeple (the list goes on) should die and that everyone in britian should be a WASP.
