    Thanks John!

    I decided to try and smooth out the look of the edges to this guitar by building up the gap with superglue. I felt pretty good about the job I did and decided it was time to move on and paint and poly this sucker.


    I used some ACE branded black paint that seemed to have blended fairly well with the original color, or at least better than the $1 flat black spray I did the headstock repair with....


    Those edges are lookin' way better than they did previously. After a light sand and re-masking the top I decided to spray a little poly on... in the rain.


    I'm feelin' pretty good about this one now, all I have to do is wait for it to cure and then I can move on to the stage where I burn through the poly with the buffing wheel and then start all over.

    I think I've taken this one as far as I can for now... Patience is one of those things I struggle with when it comes to guitar projects, I want it, and I want it NOW!!!!

    It's looking' pretty okay.. I like how the top looks now, the edges are pretty well shaped and there's enough superglue to make the top look kinda' seamless. What? This whole guitar cost maybe $185.






    Oh.. Better make that $200, I forgot about the clear lampshades I bought!

    Hahahahaha!

    Hey, Sergio. I thought about you this weekend when I was in Las Vegas. At Caesar's Palace they have a Gucci and a Luis Vitton store right next door to each other.

    I've been there!.... drunk! I'm glad when people think of high-end luxury brands my name immediately comes to mind.

    Great job, Sergio!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
