My American Master - Stone Finish - Repair Pics

So here is what i have done so far, If you check Rich's site www.ibanezrules.com and check out the pics there (under used - american master - stonefinish), You will notice that some (insert expletive here) mangled the top by drilling holes in the top for JPM switching, What the 2 very tiny screw holes were either side of the s/coil route were i have no idea???

Anyway, Waiting on a Lo-Pro so i can put it all back together, And to be honest, Its the most awesome guitar i have ever owned, And she's staying with me, Possibly even after i pass on

Comments welcome, and she'll have Black OR white pups once back together, Any other Master owners care to share pics?

Rob

It makes me so sad everytime I see that guitar, so butchered . Best of luck putting it back together.

Yeah, You can't see the damage anymore more, it'll look no differant to the day it came from the shop, except cosmo rings for now, and the odd pick swirl, but i got most out with a 4 hour hand polishing session this morning !!!

Nice nice nice man! First shots are stomach churning, but if anyone can fix her it's going to be you!

Lovely finish, really really cool!

Re: My American Master - Stone Finish - Repair Pics

the three pics you included that were being hosted by algiman just ain't happening for me, and i suspect these were the ones that were crucial to your point.

let me know if you want them rehosted on a private server.

keen to see what you're doing with that american master!

Yeah, I seem to be continually at the end of my data transfer allocation. No idea why, it has always been fine for hosting photos for Jemsite before.
