So, while i acquire all the necessary tools to start my first scratch build, I wanted to get some practice in by rebuilding an old RG I have. A good friend of mine gifted it to me about 3/4 years ago, as I didnt have a guitar at that time. After doing a little research, I determined it was a '91 EX360 that a previous owner had slapped an EMG SA/SA/81 set into in '92. Along with the pickups came another tone control (as opposed to the original factory 1V/1T setup) and an ugly wiring job. I gutted the body first. After some inspection, I ran across this.. I was aware of the neck repair and it seemed pretty solid. There's some excess glue build up around the truss rod access-cavity and the screws holding the locking nut in place. Any advice on how to clean that up effectively and safely (neck-repair-wise)? Stripped the body with a heat gun and scraper. It was fairly easy except for the inside horn contours. Scorched the back a little, but no big deal. Today, i finished off the finish (LOL) on the body, neck, and headstock. The sealer on the body is no joke! I went through 2 1/2 sheets of 60 grit today alone and i still have the sides and back to do. I dont have anywhere to do this at my apartment so Im workin on this out at my moms in the country. Pics might be spread out but Ill do my best to keep this thread updated. Any advice or suggestions are welcome!
