Right now, I've just sanded the neck down (removed the varnish) and oiled it down. Looks and feels great. New Tuners will be ordered. I compared the neck dimensions with my RG570 and found them to be almost exactly the same, which was strange because I felt like the strat neck was not comfortable.
The body, I had to do several things so far.
1) 2 trem holes (6-point trem) were not aligned, and I plugged them with pegs and glue and sanded flat.
2) All cavities are pretty badly finished, so I am sanding those flat.
Next step is to striip all the paint, prime and repaint. Don't know what color yet.
I might as well get a pre-wired pickguard, at least for the pots and stuff, and then replace later with DMZ or Lawrences, or SDs.
