Today I went to install my new Ted Crocker pickup in my son's Cohiba guitar. I cut the hole slid in the pickup then place a few drops of super glue to hold it in place. I was in a hurry so I sprayed some accelerator to set it quicker. Well....the accelerator took off the finish. I tried to stain it again but it would not take a finish. I was going to scrap the box and try to find another blond Cohiba Toro box. I called my son at college and he said Dad it doesn't matter to me if the Cohiba is on it. So I sanded the finish off, stained it maroon (Texas A&M color) and sunburst it black with my new airbrush. It turned out great. The figure in the wood really pops.
What I love about making these guitars is it is work of art, there is no right or wrong!!!!!
