Thread Name: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
Subject: RE: Help: Why not paint a guitar?
Or would you like to paint a guitar?
Use a brush, or spray from a jar?
Would you like to paint a guitar?
Or add a cutaway instead?

A cutaway is easy, if you know what to do
Access a bandsaw and some glue
Cut what you don't want, save what you do
It's just plain stupid to keep a bout you don't use
And by the way, looks like the bridge is lifting too
You may just need a screw or two.

Screws are a very special luthier's tool
Trusting glue alone is just for fools
So reinforce that bridge plate with a number 8 steel
Or maybe a smaller number 6, just judge it by feel
And by the way, if that pickguard starts to lift
A staple gun can be so nift
