I did this for my machinist's daughter's guitar. He has been incredibly helpful getting me set up for CAD guitar builds. I did this for him as a favor. Came out remarkably good considering what I had to work with!

Here are the final shots. It looks rougher than it feels. It was pretty beat to begin with...

I tuned her up 1/2 step low and she intonates very nicely. Also lowered the action about 1/4 inch and did a truss rod adjustment. New nut and nut shims, too. Plays really nice now for a cheap guitar!
