im trying to do work on my squier showmaster, i never really use it so i want to do something distinctive with it, so for starters im going to change the body shape.

i made up a few massy images in paint with a pic off a squier strat, which is pretty close to what i have (except no pickguard on my guitar) they are a bit messed up but you get the general idea...

and if anyone has any suggestions as to other body styles id appreciate it a lot

Oh. My. God. You are crazy. Leave thet guitar alone!! It's not going to look good with that pickguard on!

i dunno - i wouldnt just start sawing things off the body... if i were you i would try refinishing it or something. imho usually those kind of projects dont produce the desired results.
or you could try "ageing" the body...

but the bcrich one looks best to me

edit: i think he said his guitar doesnt have a pickguard

yeh he said it didn't have a pickguard on. If i wwere you i'd take the guitar to a guitar shop and ask how much they'd give u for it and buy something else a guitar, a pedal even pickups! this job isn't worth it. u will get next to nothing for it if you sell it after the sawing has been done

i get next to nothing now, it isnt worth the petrol costs of taking it to a shop. this guitar was damaged when i bought it, (£45 as a beginner guitar) and now im fed up with it so i want to do something interesting with it

i wont be able to sell this junk on ebay, it isnt even worth the P&P, i really wanna do something with the body though.

Do whatever you want with it...
I wouldn't advise it, nor would anyone else here...but hack away, It's your guitar man.

If it's not worth anything to you, I'd sell it to some kid who wants to learn how to play. Get a few bucks for it and buy a peadal or somthing.

Look at my sig for the results of hacking away randomly at a guitar.

I LOVE that guitar Stewey. My jaw dropped. Anyway, probably a good choice with the pups and paint.

No offence, but those are three of the ugliest guitar shapes I've ever seen.

Make it look like this.

lol it doesnt matter anymore, i just finished sanding down the front of the guitar, it looks awesome as it is now.

i just sanded the paint off the front and now its a natural finish with black binding and looks very awesome, and i cant bring myself to repaint it.

A happy ending.

You should put a clear coat over the front to keep the wood from getting gross and all scratched up.
