Another couple of coats (this stuff goes on very thin..but very evenly)
Also, in the process of attemtping to use paint stripper, I unintentionally removed the shielding paint. so Instead of trying to reapply it, I'm going to use copper backed foil tape to shield the cavities.
Current status: I sanded the paint to 600 (probably unnecessary), then reapplied several more coats. This weekend I'm going to apply the shielding tape/copper to all of the routes/cavities. I bought some Eastwood 2K clearcoat that I plan to use when the weather turns a little better around here.
In the meantime I've got to find some pink pickups and some yellow knobs. If anyone has a single source for these I would appreciate any recommendations. I'm probably going to put an EVO 2 in the Bridge and a PG injector in the neck. Still not sure what do do with the middle pickup. Again, any recommendations would be appreciated.
I was tempted to have the fretboard reinlaid (livewire seems to do nice work) with pyramids, but Figure I'll wait until I see how the end result of this current project is before I tackle that. If it turns out like crap, at least I haven't sunk that much money into it.
I'll post more pictures as this progresses.
