Let the Games Begin

I think the time has come. I still don't know for sure what pickups I'm going to be using or even what color I'm going to paint it. But I think the time is now to disassemble it and strip off the existing paint. I'm at least going to take the blue coat off. If I can, I'm going to take the original pink off too to see if the wood is decent looking enough to try to finish au naturale. We'll see. The binding needs some work because it has yellowed and gotten some blue paint on it (the previous owner wasn't very careful in masking it off). The neck pickup will find a new home in my Squier '51. I'm going to check the holes in the body to make sure they are big enough for Allparts pots. Pictures will be forthcoming as things progress.
