A carbon fiber false cover might look good on this and be less expensive than a full refinish.

Yeah, try to find a skin for it. Cheap and reversible.

Leave no stone unturned until I'm done.

I'd refinish it personally, just something solid. I don't know what you paid for it, but I'd get the middle single coil route filled, refinish over it, get an HS Soloist, block the bridge (or fill the route [since we're going all out anyway ] and get a Schaller 456 on there).

Filling routes is very easy, and my local tech will do re-routes on stripped bodies for as little as 30 if you remove all the hardware etc.


HS Jackson Soloist with an awesome hard tail bridge would be epic. Even if that's $5-600 work, if the guitar cost much under a grand it'd be so worth it to me.

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!

I was with you all the way until the hardtail point.

There are tons of options I would go with. I've always wanted to do a Bengal pattern with a deep sparkly blue on top of white pearl or plain white.

Rhinestones.

Decided for th etime being I'll just play it and enjoy it. I'm going to plug the holes with screws and put in a dimarzio Super 3 in th ebridge.

Thought, how about getting some anodised screws in either complimentary/contrasting colour?

That seldom works, anyway - the block of wood you have to use frequently destroys the resonance of the guitar.

Division - American metal that doesn't suck. Much. Even on Facebook, and Soundclick might eventually be updated, too.

I thought you said you were going to enjoy it?

Refinish it? What's the point? Looks good from the pictures. Who cares if it's got a few holes in it.

Spend your money on good pickups to throw in and any other placement parts it might need.

How much did you pay for that if you don't mind me asking.

if you find a nail polish of a similar color you can try to fill the holes paint them
