I'm looking to fill in a pickup cavity in an epiphone dot studio and painting over it. How should I go about doing this?

My first thought was don't, you'll cut down on tone possibilities, but if you are hell bent then do this:
glue a thin piece of wood on the inside of the cavity flush with the top arch, fill in the 1/4 inch lip that you will leave with Minwax wood filler, sand, paint, finish, rock out.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Fill it with a well sized piece of dowl/wood and shape to fit.

Either that or;

Place a plate that has been slightly recessed into the body work over the top of hole then fill it.


Then for both;

Sand it, shape it, paint it.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Ahaha.... no. You're repainting the guitar if you do this. Or at least the front.

What colour is it now?

Honestly you'd be better off repainting the whole thing, so make it what ever color you like. If you wanna match it, take to a hardware store like lowes or home Depot or whatever, they can match the color for you.

I REALLY love the exact color of the guitar. If they can match it, that would be sick. Itt'l be one hell of a mod to pull off. Thanks for the help guys.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
