The old stratolike (Stratocaster Lookalike) guitar is starting to look pretty good.
Jacqui managed to get the old stickers off using some dark magic. I cleaned the neck, and removed the old machine heads. I'll keep an eye out for some new ones.
Anyway: looking good so far:
We decided to go on a bit of hunt around wellington for more bits. We visited several guitar shops in the city and managed to find:
1) A machine head to replace the missing one. They guy gave it to me for nothing, which was nice :)
2) A Jack cover ( the bit where the cable goes )
3) Pickup covers to brighten the old pickups.
4) A little plastic bit for the pickup selector.
I asked about a new scratch plate, but no-one had one. One guy said he could order one, but I reckon I'll get one online. These guys specialise in guitar bits, so I guess I can get it from there.
While we were in Music Warehouse, we spotted a pretty good acoustic guitar. I hadn't intended to buy one, but jacqui said - "it'll be your birthday & christmas present for the next 3 years", so I thought, cool!. I've been meaning to get a decent acoustic guitar for years. So, we picked out a rather nice Takamine G Series. I tried a few, but this one seemed to feel the nicest (from an electric player's perspective).
