Some of you may remember my Cheap NGD thread from back in November. After a looooooong startup, and moderately bad case o' COVID, and a few weeks of getting home, getting back to full strength, and getting some other projects out of the way, today's the day I turn this cheap Chinese LP Junior knockoff into a punky, junky PLAYAH. The real workshop is too cold to work, so I'm going to do this project on a folding table in the family room/office/studio. Walmart worktable for a Walmart guitar. Aerosmith's first album, "Toys In The Attic", and "Rocks" playing on the studio setup. (Why don't I have MP3s of "Get Your Wings?) Here you can see I have everything I need (and one thing I don't) for the project. First step: The tuners were absolutely awful. I replaced them with a set of used Grovers I bought from one of the forums. They're a little rough, but overall they raise the level of quality/class of this POS guitar. The little stick kept them in line while I drilled the new holes. (Yes, there's another stick on the front to project the plastic peghead face.) I even remembered to soap the screws before I ran them in. Next, I pulled the pickup, planning to replace it with a GFS Mean 90. First bump in the road: look at this pickup route. It looks like it was done freehand. The Mean 90 doesn't fit. Dang. I'm going to have to brave the cold, cold garage and get out the Dremel. Stay tuned.
