The Guitar Saga

I mentioned a while back the problem with my guitar. Since then, I've checked books and websites; buttloads of information on repainting/refinishing electric guitars, but not squat on acoustics could I find.

Couple of days ago asked a couple of the folks with Beyond the Nine if they knew anybody; and lo! they pointed me to this place, Sooner Acoustic Music. So went by, they looked it over, and said(boiled down) "This will have to all be sanded off and recoated; I can do it, but you can too." And when I said was willing, he spent about twenty minutes on hows and whats(including where to get the finish he recommended), ending with "Don't be afraid to call me if you have any questions."

So I'll be doing it, now that I actually have the information needed and advice(if needed). Assuming I don't lose track, I'll take pictures when I start, and during the process.

I was stationed at Tinker, AFB from 1986 to 1993 and then again from 1999 to 2001. I am not surprised by the shop owner’s attitude. The OKC, Midwest City, Del City area has some great folks.
