Hey all, first thread in GB&C. I'm psyched!

Well anyways, I was thinking of filling the hole under the pickguard of my Explorer. I was probably going to just use the salvaged, excess woods I used to build a failed Telecaster body and a pretty alright Stratocaster body and glue it into the hole. Anybody else have a better way of going abouts this?

Cheers!

are you going to be leavign the pickguard on, or off? im assuming you dont need the space under it anymore?


Leaving it off. Moving the pickup selector to where the tone knob currently is and removing one of the volume knobs. Then I'll probably paint it.

you want to use the same wood the body is made out of to fill the hole so it will finish the same, same grain, do yourself a favor and cut the peice of wood so the grain is goin the same direction as the body, much easier when you sand it out. you w.ant it to fight real tight, then cover it in some woodglue, tightbond or something, not gorilla glue, no expanding glue. woodglue would be awesome, then just sand it flush, call it a day

Great! Thanks very much. I'll get to it! I thought I might need some wood glue so I bought some a week or so ago.
