I was thinking of first putting a piece of wood in the hole and then fill the rest with some plastic padding.

How would that work out?
#5
might work, it might be a bitch getting the other piece of wood right tho...

Ive heard some people saying that the wood will change so that after a while the paint will crack. Is this right?
#7
change? in what way? it might shrink a little yes, if there is moisture in the wood. all i know is that you dont wanna paint the plastic padding if it's still "wet" rather let it dry for a few days, sand it smooth and you should be fine. atleast thats what i know about it

Thanks for the help. I think I'm going to try doing it that way.

Btw, is it possible to leave a "tunnel" where I put the wires?
#10
but then again, letting a luthier do it might be really expensive, and since it is a copy and i asume it might 've been a cheap one it might not even be worth it.

/edit yes it might be possible within the plastic padding... just put a wire in there while you're filling the gaps and make sure it sticks out on both ends so you can pull it out with a bit of a yank, while ofcourse it's still wet, it should work.

Yeah it was pretty cheap, and we don't a luthier anywhere around here so its best that I do it myself.

How about painting? Do I have to repaint the whole guitar?
Because I don't want any edges.
#12
yup, or just build up layers of paint untill it matches the guitars original paint, although the paint on the guitar will look different than the paint you just put on because of aging(sp?), so i suggest to repaint the whole thing

Okey. Do I need to use any special paint? Or can I spray it with car paint?
And do I have to remove all the old paint first?
#14
if you're going to spray it over completely i advice you strip it of the old paint indeed, and not to sure about the paint though... i know there are some spraypainters that'll do it for a reasenable price, or ask around if any of your friends knows someone who can do it, those usually are the cheaper ways to get it painted and it'll still look as good as when you'd paid $100 more for a shop to do it.
