    Hi all, I'm currently refinishing an old cheap strat style guitar and I've gotten most of the sanding done on the body except for where the neck is inserted and where the electronics and pickups and what not go. I'm not sure how to continue here because I'm afraid of after sanding those areas, the neck and electronics will not fit properly.

    Any help/ideas?

    Alrighty, now I know and now I don't have to fret about it. This is my first time refinishing a guitar so I wasn't too sure if I was supposed to sand there or not. Thanks guys
