Taking #details to a new level...



80s dimarzio (?) hardtail for authenticity, but it's in the wrong finish. So it will be chrome plated, with string savers added.

Then I need to change the bridge pickup to one with the appropriate spacing.

Anything else? Maybe some electrical tape...

Anyone ever refinish a guitar? Any tips / recommendations?

I had an old red strat I'm refinishing and upgrading pickups on. It was a red strat, so I'm doing a la hendrix monterey pop to keep some of the original feel of the guitar, at least in my mind.

Already hand painted the pickguard and have the body mostly sanded except cavities (which I'm thinking of just taping, but not sure). The paint/seal process is more what I'm interested in.

FWIW, Hendrix literally just sprayed over the guitar, with the hardware in place. There's paint spatter visible of the jack socket of the remaining fragment. So don't sweat it too much

I'm aware Not going for perfection. It was(/is?) a Squier, so I'm not going to lose much sleep over anything I botch.

Didn't he remove the pick guard at one point

It appears that way, as the pickguard seems to have been a sprayed over white. It was a celluloid w/b/w three ply originally. I assume that was off when he did the re-spray, but I can't say with any certainty, I can't tell from any of the images or video remaining.

Also, why doesn't James90 have a Monterey yet?

Were all pickguards back then 3-ply?

And because they haven't released the new #details version yet, and I don't want to pay $20k or whatever for the CS version with the backstage pass on the back.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd has one of the CS ones, but I got the impression that the neck was replaced as it has a reverse headstock. I have a video of him playing it from a few years back actually. I'll have to send it to you sometime.

The Monterey (red one) was a 63/64, so yeah it would have had the nitro 3ply guard as standard I believe.
It definitely had a three ply on in the earlier photos, and the shots from Monterey show that the pickguard is thicker and bevelled, which the single ply guards were not, so it's reasonable to assume that it's just a painted 'mint' guard.

I don't think there will ever be a #details version at this point, especially with the fingerboard wood change. You're probably better off doing a custom.

Would anyone be able to recommend a bandsaw for guitar building?
Is a budget of 200 realistic?

You'll get a good second hand one for that. I'd be looking at a 2x wheel 10" or 12", but you'd need to pay a bit more if you're buying new. The Clarke ones are pretty good value.

Top tip is to get the biggest most powerful one you can, so you don't need to upgrade in the future.
