I recently bought a guitar for 25 bucks and a really nice Godin case for an extra 10. I took the bridge out and the pickup (yes only one single coil) out and taped off the controls and jacks. Then I painted it with a granite finish. Im going to strip the finish later on if I feel like it and go bare to the wood and do it all over again instead of just layering the paint.

I'll have pics up as soon as I find the cord. I think its a shortscale guitar with 22 frets. The headstock looks a bit like a godin and that's about it. Someone told me he thought it was from Sears but it has no markings. Also there was a blue wire attatched to the bridge and Im not quite sure what that's for but I protected that as well. I'll post pics by the end of the weekend with tips of what to do and what not to do.

If anyone wants to see this on webcam, PM me your yahoo or MSN and I'll take it down from the basketball net.

The wire from the bridge is connected to the ground of the jack or pots or pickups. It provides a ground for the strings. Every electric has one.

Looks like fun!

I just got another one and this is super thin. I also got a working bass with it. 30 bucks for the pair.
