    Could you take a picture of the pickup cavity to show how thick the maple cap and the veneer is?

    Sorry, I didn't strip the pickup cavities so it won't show you anything, it's just solid color. I'd estimate the cap to be about 1/2 or so thick, probably more, at the center. Here's what I have so far:[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    got 90% of it with my orbital sander and some patience. Now it's gonna take a lot more patience for the neck joint area...

    I tested some cherry stain on the face, because I want to warm up the guitar quite a bit, I don't want "red" but think heritage cherry sunburst without the burst. It had little effect, any ideas on how to warm it up?

    It's in very good condition, I was just throwing ideas out there, I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with it. If by chance I ruin the veneer the maple cap looks like
    its good wood (from what I can see anyway) I sanded it with 120.

    Looks like a fun project. You should post a final photo when you're done.
