So the guy who was going to buy my HM Strat simply can't afford it (only $180 actually) so I decided to get him to send it back. He agreed, and I will hopefully get my hands on it again next week.
So the plan is to upgrade with a Gotoh floyd, cut a custom HH pickguard for it, and refinish it.
I started sanding off the finish before I sold it, bit it's like 2mm thick or something, it took forever to get through the flat top with a machine sander, and I gave up on the backside and just "fuck this" and decided to sell it.
Does anybody have a good idea how to sand off the finish faster? Seriosly, I am NOT looking forward to hand-sanding the inner parts of the horns and shit...
Why dont you try somehow to fix a Tube into a Drill and roll some Grit paper around that tube and the use the Drill as a Sanding machine
Im talking out loud here, but I would probably do the same because im going to strip the paint of a guitar myself and I really dont want to deal with the horns interior that take forever by hand. I'm thinking in getting a regular PVC or Metal tube fill it with corks and the stick a drill into it, glue some grit paper into the tube and voilá
I know seems easy but lets see how it works
Unless of course you have access to one of this:
Seems these things already exist and we dont need to become MacGyver type of guys
They are called Drum Sanding Bits
