I got this guitar in trade. So far I just have the body. It is pretty neat looking. Reminds me of my beat up wood coffee table.

It came wrapped like a cocaine shipment! LOL

I noticed a broken screw and got right to work.

Tried drilling the screw out with no luck so I did my usual and drilled an equal size hole left and right of it, dug plyers in. and pulled the bastard out.

Taped off the hole and put in some wood glue and stuffed it with toothpicks.

When I get back from LA I will sand it down flush. Pickguard covers it totally.

I need to order a new back plate from Pickguardian when I get back and I will probably get a new pickguard. Gives me the chance to do something different. Black does look cool, but other stuff might be cool.

Here it is with a little black and red paint rubbed on just for fun.

Took off the strap buttons to put on some black Duncan locks.

So I decided to save some cash on the pickguard. The back plate is ordered and being made. What I thought of (and I am embarassed it took me so long) was to use my sanding block on the glitter instead of nail polish remover. It worked great. It has a matte look with uniform scratches similar to the SY Jazzys brushed metal ones. Got the new stainless pickguard screws in and she is ready for her neck! :)

The repair looks great. Screwed in fine.

The neck came today! I popped it on and put some strings on. I am going to wait to tune her up so the neck can adjust to the new temp and such.
