Hi All, Here's a little project I've been working on for a couple of days. I have had a broken acoustic guitar hiding away for about a year now, It was pretty beat up / well used the paint was chipped and it was no longer playable (the bridge let go in the middle of a particularly hot summer night and took half of the ply from the top with it). I couldn't bring myself to just throw it away, but can't justify holding on to a full sized busted guitar. It was a gloss black guitar, the headstock was scratched to peices, and had chips in the paint. I ended up sanding off the gloss paint from the back of the neck and leaving it raw. I cut the neck just above the fretwire for the fifth fret, leaving it quite long but I wanted to keep one of the pearloid dots in the neck. I'm not sure what kind of wood the neck itself is, when I was shaping the end it smelled very sweet, but not a wood I'm familiar with. very little was done prep wise, sanded from 200 to 1200 grit, and gave it a poly coat on the back, leaving the rosewood fretboard raw and unfinished. so here is what I ended up with.
