Use the broil setting, if you have one.

Or a laser gun.

Modern poly finishes - particularly on a cheap-o guitar - are like a plastic coating. It will be an absolute mess.

Thanks Haze! I'm up in Montana... I haven't been to OK since I was at Ft. Sill for a few months of Army training back in 2003. Where do you guys usually do meets?

Gracias. I still need to get the upper control plate figured out... If anyone knows where to find a "blank" one, that'd be great. I may just add another circuit up there eventually...

The odds of me pulling off a Vai cover are slim to none! Very Happy

I'm Blues or Punk Rock, with not much else in between. My playing skills are about as good as my finishing skills!

Thanks! It IS pretty orange - all of these shots were taken in pretty low light. A darker orange for sure, though.

Thanks - I'll probably go ahead and pick up a chisel tomorrow while I'm out.
