Thread: Hey there!

  1. #1

    Hey there!

    Hey there everyone, just thought i'd pop in and say hi. First and foremost, I am a hack at best when playing the guitar (there's only three chords yeah?). Anyways, good thing this isn't for me, my beautiful lady will be the recipient of what I hope is a great surprise present. I have opted for the epiphone model - ES-1.

    I hope people don't mind several noobesque questions as I haven't had much experience painting wood (excepting fences and the like - nothing a savvy as a guitar!).

    Anyways, I'll trawl the forums and look for some tips and tricks (great news is she loves white guitars so that's hopefully a good thing).

    welcome KPJ Best bit of advice I can give is..."if in doubt ask the forum before going any further".
    Second is read the manual http://pitbullguitars.com/wp-content...s%20Manual.pdf yea, I know reading manuals is what you do AFTER stuffing up but in this case make an exception

    Enjoy !

    btw there are actually 4 chords but the last one is for those show off jazz guys

    Welcome KJP.
    ES1 is a nice kit. I have almost finished one and hope to have it all done by Friday.
    Never painted a guitar so cannot offer any advice other than check out as many build diaries as possible as there will lots of useful information to be found there.
    Cheers, Waz

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Just wondering if there is anyone on here that hails from Victoria and is undertaking an Epiphone project?

    Can't believe you've prioritised Dm over F.
    Wars have been fought over less...

    Obvious example, the House of York argued for F while the House of Lancaster argued for Dm, the rest is history.

    Oh, welcome KJP :-)
