Refret, Clean, and any electronic issues and that's all man. That thing has MojO
Never did I think that I would have gotten these responses, but you guys have influenced me in your unanimous opinion for leaving it how it is. I guess I just wanted to make it look as new as possible because the dings number in the thousands, and the hardware is dirtier than Amy Winehouse.
Probably one of my favorite js
's so far.
Definately clean the electronics, and fix the fretboard up
but i'd leave it like that for the time being especially if gigging, that thing looks awesome how it is.
No, definitely not gigging any more. I have a full time job, a family of four and school full time. I don't think I'll get a chance to play for more than 15 minutes at a time.
I don't even understand how you do that? It's Mahogany right? I have a '94 Patrick Eggle Berlin that has a solid Mahogany body and you would be hard pressed to find a single scratch on the top and it has been used a lot!
Not sure. The wood is pretty soft. The previous owners had to have pretty aggressive picking style and a lot of sharp belt buckles.
Yeah, thats rad just give it a good setup and a little oil and leave it alone.
Are you suggesting oiling over the wood as is??
Firstly, congratulations on the guitar!
It's just a lump of wood at the end of the day so I'm sure with a little work and patience, you can get it looking in great condition again.
Have fun with it - you're a lucky man to have one!
Thanks. I've lusted after this guitar ever since I saw it for the first time years ago. I would have preferred to get one in better condition, but apparantly the condition is not so bad.
Question: Is there something I can soak the bridge and chrome pieces in to clean them? I've heard everything from Vinegar to Carb cleaner.
