Decided to refinish a bass guitar my cousin had laying in the corner for close to 20 years now. It was the first bass guitar he ever owned as a kid and has since grown up, got married, popped out a kid or two and has moved onto owning quite the collection of 4, 5, 6, and 7 string BTBs, multi-scales, and other high end pieces. It has always held some sentimental value to him as a "this is where it started" sort of thing even though it's been run over by a car and the frets ripped out and filled in like a cool kid haha) and I knew with work and family that he'd never have time to do anything with it. Soooo I stole it without him knowing, refinished it, polished every piece of hardware, and reshaped the head stock so he could hang it on the wall to look nice and reminisce about the good old days. When I presented it to him he couldn't believe it was the same guitar, he loved it. Mission accomplished. . . .
