New life for Yamaha EG-012
This guitar was in pretty bad shape when I bought it (but it was cheap!).
Someone had made some changes to it, but the result was just plain ugly. And the thing didn´t even work.
The body needed a lot of work. I used a hot air gun to remove the old
paint. Then there was sanding, filling, sanding, primer paint, sanding
The neck wasn´t so bad. Just cleaning and light oiling was needed, and
I replaced the Yamaha logo with my own. I installed a second pickup and
remade all electrics (a volume knob and a three-way pickup selector).
Here are some pictures of the process:
And here is the finished guitar:
I am actually quite happy with the guitar. It´s easy to play and sounds ok.
