recently came into the possesion of one, stripped of all hardware.
i have the hardware too, but i dont plan on using it.

so basically its a neck and body off a low end guitar.


my plan is to do that 4 pickup thing i was talking about in the other thread, and to cut off the horn


but i want ideas for the paint job
suggs?

Oh well, now the empty shell of what used to be chocolaty goodness can contain a tasty guitar circuit.

If it's anything like my epiphone les paul jr. was, smash it up and throw it in the trash. Unless you enjoy getting your hand hurt by the frets poking out, and you like the genuine plywood tone.

No. It just looks, well, bad. Sorry, but that's my opinion. If you feel that the horn was in the way then I can't criticise you for making your axe easier to play.

there is something wrong with you that has nothing to do with that instrument you want to build.

Waste!! The least you can do is even out the cut part and maybe invest in some spray cans.
