Converting my SC-608b from black to natural finish

Post by Guest on Wed May 05, 2010 9:39 pm

So, long story short, I want to try out the natural finish on my ESP ltd SC-608b. So I want to basically take the paint off, down to the naked guitar. I have no idea what I am doing here, how do i go about this? what are some sites to check out? any info, please and thanks :)

UPDATE - I found someone (that works for my dad's construction company) that would sand my guitar professionally. I don't know how long it will take or when he'll sand it down, but he's in my contacts

well i can tell you the Quickest way would be to get an electric sander. But if your not carefull you could burn the wood it's self. other options would be to Hand sand it, which would take a long, long time.

As hor what type of sand paper to use, I don't know lol could check out

cool. I'd love to see it when it gets done. also I'm thinking about getting one my self but it would be a while.

So other then the SRC Inlay there anything else I should worry about if I was to get it?

the middle pickup is kind of in the way if you dont lower it. and the saddles *sometimes* have a tendency to fall off if you don't check it periodically. other than that, it is a great guitar.

really? the saddle screws get lose? that is pretty strange, But not a big deal I guess lol and as for the Pickup I forgot about that lol I would probably either A. Lower it like you said. or B. Play in the Neck area of the pickup area when not palm muting lol

another option I would have would be to get the Schecter Damien-8 lol But alot of people say the 26.5" scale doesnt work for it.

yeah, the pickup sounds pretty good where it is, its just in the way for playing anything on the high e or low F#. I was sweep picking (attempting lol) and it was getting in the way to the point where I couldnt play. I tried playing at a diffferent position on the neck but it gets to be annoying to play with your wrist in the air like that.

As for the saddle screws, they don't physically get loose, they are just so close to being unscrewed that sometimes they detach, and if you aren't careful you can lose the spring and the screw. It only really happens on the High E string though.

As for the Damien 8...yeah I wouldn't go for that. Ibanez is making a cheap one now, i heard. you could try that out. I dont know the quality, or if its even for sale yet, but its an option.
