ok, so my girlfriend's birthday is coming up and she told me like a month ago that she wanted to learn to play bcuz her sexy boyfriend does (lol aka me ) and so i was thinkin , i have this old acoustic that i learned to play on...my first guitar.....and i was gonna give that to her and then teach her to play..but my only problem is that its all scratched up and so im repainting it and im gonna fix the bridge on it (if i can, cuz the action is WAY to high and difficult to play on so yeah...
im gonna post pictures as soon as i can... so yeah, i just wanted some advice as i go (not yet, but later i mean...) so yeah, i'l post pics either tonight or tomarrow or somthing....but this is what i started with....



its a bit fuzzy..but its a start..sorry about the huge pic...

EDIT:
things to do:
Peel off the gayosity stickers (DONE)
Sand (done)
Prime (started)
Paint/ Stain
Sand Frets (started
SEXY INLAYS (check out my ideas in the other thread)


EDIT:

this is the guitar with primer and the inlays i was tlaking about..









so yeah, dont worry this is NOT done at all, not nearly lol

Buy her a dildo, because you obviously lost your male parts after B-Dazzling your guitar.


hahaha, jk. Can you scrape that shit off?
#7
Peace Love and WHAT??

haha cool gift though. I'm kinda doing the same but instead I'm buying a guitar for my girlfriend so she can paint it. Maybe the I'll be able to convince her to learn to play her creation.

sounds like it will be a good gift. I think she will like you more for it.

Although it looks like you glued robot testicles onto it.

haha that was a long time ago that i put the tin stickers... i know, it looks gay, but hey, it coverd up some of the scracthes...and yeah, i took them off... and the thing says "Piece, Love, Empathy" its from Kurt Cobain's note...yeah.... so far i've started primeing it for paint...so i think im gonna paint the top black and either stain the sides or paint them blue (her favorite color) and i wasnt really gonna get MANY books for her cuz i think i can teach her, but im just gonna do what the guy that taught me to play did: teach and draw out diagrams and pictures as i go along, the only thing im gonna change from his lesson plans really is im gonna teach some theory on the side so she doesnt have to figure it out by her self (like i did)
yep, i think she'll like it

Make sure the neck's straight. You can't typically adjust the action at the bridge, but you can straighten the neck out. If there's too much buzz at the top frets, you can put some paper under the strings at the nut to raise the action there. If there's too much buzz at the lower frets...well...it's TOO straight.

To be honest that primer looks terrible. what are you using? I'd sand that off and do it again.
Sorry to be harsh, but you'll be better of in the long run.
#15
Yeah, the primer looks horribly patchy. You put it on with a stranded brush, didn't you?

you could paint it a sort of dark brown, and add binding. then it would look like the Doyle Dykes signature taylor. Teach your girlfriend to play like him. If i had a girlfriend that played like that... wow... *drools*

and more seriously.....nah dont give it her she dont deserve it

#34
DO NOT GIVE IT TO HER! YOU WILL NOT GET HER BACK!

TRUST ME!

Good idea on staining the sides! Just er change the inlays to your next chick's name
#35
but she told me earlier theres a chance of us gettin back together...and her birthday is in 2 days.... and i cant repaint the inlays..i drilled holes in it and filled them with paint so it wouldnt bump up and make it difficult to play....
yeah, im still giveing it to her.... and now it really wouldnt mean that much to me anymore....so theres not point in keeping it....and i really was gonna give it to my friend but he didnt want it since it had her name on it lol.....

Bring it to her on here birthday and say "I was going to give this to you... But you dumped me so im keeping this shit now". She will want it and/or get upset and cry. Then go out and have a nice beer
