Project : resto and slight modification
Bought my rg7321 a few days ago, and needless to say, its a little worse for wear. a huge chunk was missing on the body, and the neck was in despicable shape. It looks like the guitar was played a few times in a smokers home, and left in a closet and not payed any attention for 6 years (its an 05 model).
So what Im doing/done so far,
Neck -> Already done, but heres a description
- Polished frets. there was no appreciable fret wear, but they were corroded as hell.
- refinished the top and bottom.
- did a "prestige" neck pocket mod. Nothing screams "Cheap" like that bit of extra wood that sticks out from the body. I took a wood rasp and filed it down, and sanded the whole neck smooth.
- sanded fret ends to smooth them out, make it feel better and less "sharp". should work out well.
I popped up the chip and slapped some bondo. When it cures, ill sand it flat and match it to the body. then I will redo the clear on the whole body, because its gunked up pretty badly. should come out well when Im finished.
Yes yes, pics are coming in a minute, gotta upload them and stuff, takes a while.
