I got this cheesy Strat copy (GK brand) at a garage sale this morning for $5. I expected it to be laminate or something, but it actually appears to be a 3 piece solid wood body. I am trying to decide if it's worth sanding down or not

Can anyone tell anything from this grain:



Whatever it is it's feather light.

Asian guitars have often been made with agathis (sp?).

Ya good call guys. I didn't even think of that one. My Dearmond M77T is Agathis and it sounds great. I'd take it over a lot of Basswood guitars I have played. The grain doesn't look too bad either so I might strip it.
