    Oh yeah, I mean I was only a kid in the 80's, but all those guitars have a soft spot for me. I did have an awesome Hondo BC Rich copy for a while, but I've since sold it on.

    It's rare to get straight up argument on this board, which is one of its best features.

    Sure you could do that. I think it'd probably wear off fairly quickly, unless it was under a sealing coat, but you could touch it up with string changes I suppose.

    If that's poly on the front it will flatten out quite a lot as it drys and hardens.

    ^ This is what I think, the finish will take up a lot of that gap. I would just keep going, maybe put a couple of extra coats in that area.

    EDIT: Ugh.. new page... but what Jim was saying.

    Yeah, it's all a bit strange. Cracking at joins isn't all that unusual though and doesn't necessarily mean the joint has failed.

    At that end I don't think I'll know the full story until I get go...

    It doesn't look too bad, and even though you will sand, the finish will also add some material so it might work out OK. What are the finishing plans?

    Ok, so we've had a chat and elected to keep researching options, one of which may be building up a kit using these electronics and putting the kit ones in this so it can be a complete wall hanger.

    That was one of my first thoughts when I picked it up and played it, that maybe the centre block had come away. It's very difficult to see in through the F holes, but it looks like it's still glued...

    Yeah he really likes the guitar and wants to use it for gigging, but you are right, potentially a lot of work involved if the neck has to come off. From inside the cavity the join looks solid. The...

    Cort Semi Hollow

    Hey brains trust,

    So I've just had a guy drop off a rather battle worn Cort semi hollow body guitar. I think it's a copy of an ES-335?

    It actually doesn't matter, you can do it either way. Finish will not soften the wood to the point the screws will not grab, as finishes also harden I'm not sure where this logic comes from.
