This may be the closest thing to an action sequence that has ever appeared in this comic.

I’m slowly getting geared up for another guitar DIY project.  I bought my very first electric guitar when I was 17 years old for $65 : an off-brand H-S-S superstrat-style guitar with a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo.  It has been out of commission for a few years now, and I think it is about time to get it playing again – and hot rod it at the same time.  I’m going to re-fret the neck with jumbo fretwire, re-route the neck pickup position to take a humbucker (so I can use my beloved H-S-H configuration), plane the neck joint down for better access to the higher frets, sand the neck a touch thinner (and refinish it), and refinish the body in surf green or something similar.  I’ll probably make a lot of mistakes and there is a good chance that the guitar will be totally ruined in the process, but I expect I’ll learn a thing or two in the process.

Expect pictures in the coming weeks.


Have a nice week.
