I recently found an old encore guitar that a family member gave me a while back.
Seeing as its just sat there doing nothing i decided to re spray it etc.
However from what ive heard you need to take the electrics out of the guitar, but im no good at that. Any tips and ideas?
Is it a Strat?

If it is, then open up the pickguard and the input jack, and solder off the leads from the jack to the tone and volume controls.

And, open up the backplate, and there should be a wire there aswell, so take that off. You'll also have to take off the neck and bridge, but that's just screwing some stuff, which is a easy job.
