Here we go!
This was my second project that I started at the end of the summer, it was an old guitar (a Stagg.. nothing fancy) that the school were chucking so i couldnt resist the chance to make it look (and sound) awesome!

Let the pictures begin:







as you can see, it was in a bit of a state...

to work!

ready to glue the body

glued and sanded

all filled up and ready to go!

and at this point... my phone/camera got busted so the pictures skip forward about 4 weeks... to completion! =)
This was all inspired by my recent obsession with Paul Gilbert and i think i did his signature style proud.







i also designed and stenciled the headstock. The truss rod cover has my initials on too...




Hope you like this.
There may not seem much point to this thread... but i have provided some pictures, which is what everybody loves.
and also proved that anyone can make a good job with a little money and plenty time. (only spent £40 in total)
Ask me if you want details about stuff, i didnt bother including a list...

Congrats on resuscitating a dead guitar!!! Good job and gluing the body, the paint job, custom touch on the headstock, etc. ... and all for cheap. It doesn't matter if it's a Stagg or a Squier (more common here in the US).

think "rejuvenated" more than does it justice.

And i forgot to mention that it plays like a beast too
(in a good way! lol)

I wish more people fixed up smashed guitars. You see some guy smash a strat onstage, and usually its just the neck off the body, or the body broken in half down a grain in the wood. A real waste.
#12
How the F**K did some one smash that guitar in half?

Although I am suprised to see the stagg isnt plywood lol

you did a real nice job on it but I would upgrade the pups.

why would a school have a stagg guitar with EMGs lol

any way in this pic there is no writing at all on the humbucker, so I doubt they are

That looks sick man, If it were me doing it I'd now wack some Dimarzios in there (like pauls proper guitar) and buy an ibanez neck on its own to fit, or one from warmouth, they make some pretty good necks that'll work with any guitar! they play great too!
#24
how it broke:

basically the school got really shitty wall hangers for the guitars... another 2 died in the same way before they got the things fixed

And sherlock holmes up there was right, they are defo not EMG's

Im not going to bother upgrading anything on this guitar, going to wait til i have the funds and build myself a beauty from parts, started looking out my designs already

and as for the Topman skinny's... whaayy! they're well sexy :P
