Before throwing myself into Kahler routing, I drilled the hole for the customary Fender output jack. This is where jacks go on V shaped guitars, ok Gibson? Then, off with the last remnants of the commie burst. Lets sand! 10 hours later... Ok, let's use the stripper instead... 20min later. Well, there was actually a reason why I didn't want to use the stripper first, I thought I may melt the bondo I have all around the guitar. But hey, you try sanding a commie burst for a while and then see if you too decide to risk it! Anyway, not much happened to it so that went ok.
