I believe I mentioned this video somewhere, possibly even on this forum. Here it is, in all it's attempted humor...

Not a bad bunch of ideas but I'd skip most of those steps & buy an inexpensive Squire, etc, & jump to the replacement pups steps.

I like that guy's BILL NYE approach to presentation. wink

But personally, I've got him beat in ONE area......

He talks briefly about how to get a "relic type" finish and look to the guitar. But with MY "handyman" skills, I can make ANY guitar, from ANY kit look AND sound like a "relic" wink as well as making any guitar from a HIGH END kit look and sound like it was from a CHEAPO kit. grin

Started watching it, then a few minutes in, it occurred to me that it isn't worth going through all that for a cheap kit Guitar. Silk purse out of a sow's ear, as it were.

Unfortunately, not all of us have your superior skills, Fang. rimshot
