    1977 Ibanez "lawsuit" SG

    Check this bad boy out.

    I've been doing a fair bit of work on other peoples guitars of late, but been a bit slack sharing. Can't resist with this one, in for a total overhaul and clean up as much...

    Weekend away so no real progress. I did go and have some fresh fret board templates printed. All the scaling is perfect so fingers crossed.

    Are you going to scrape the binding around the f holes anyway? might not matter that you've broken through there.

    As others have said, don't worry to much about it looking dull at the moment. Once...

    Awesome. I wonder if they were having trouble colour balancing the black/red guitar with the blue jacket. I'll bet making the jacket look blue made the guitar look really dark, so it was easier to...

    I wonder if you could re-radius one of the existing necks? Bit of work, but probably cheaper than those in that link

    Ah right. Yeah I really haven't noticed any splintering/tear out issues with this except where I was a bit aggressive in removal of the fretboard. I've actually found it quite nice to work with.

    There is no completely correct way to go about it and approaches vary depending on the style of kit.

    Yep and yep. I was happy to sacrifice the fretboard, its no good anyway. The squire neck I'm using for comparison has a buggered truss rod so I'll have a go at doing it at some point down the track.

    And done. Messy and the fingerboard broke. Probably be easier with a better scraper and frets installed. No major damage to the neck though so that's good.

    Pencils might work. I wouldn't use anything oil based as it might react with your finishing. What about sanding it thinner in that spot?

    Hmm, thats a shame. If it were me I'd try and make a corresponding spot on the other side, so it looks like its part of the timber book match. Then when you stain it won't look out of place.
