So what started as a "Hey Groff, will you clean, and set up my guitar?" turned into "Hey! Lets strip all the paint off, stain it purple, and oil it!" So here it is after I took all the stuff off. Another. Because EMG's are awesome, I just uplugged them, covered up the connectors, and un-attached the electronics. This way I can sand it and do everything I need to do without un-soldering anything, since I'm lazy Let's begin Finished sanding for now. I took it down to the sealer, i'm going to the bare wood tomorrow, when the dye arrives and I can get started on that. More to come tomorrow. Update 11/21/09 MOAR SANDING! Because... MOAR!!! I made Jason do it because it's his guitar after all. The insides of the horns are clearly a pain in the ass. Jay Low says: "FUCK YOUR SHIT!" The headstock has a REALLY nice grain pattern to it. Body is FINALLY prepped for dye. The smell of MEK and dye is like solvent and feet... The body right after it was brushed. It's still a little wet, it evened out a LOT as it soaked in. And the smexy headstock UPDATE! 11/28/09 completed! DONE! This went from an M-100 to an 18v M-100 ov d00m!! The 81's at 18v sound killer!
