A while back, I bought a Fender Squier Bass at a pawn shop for $60, it had had a rough life. When I bought the bass it had some spray paint on spots of it, and it had been doused in glitter. It was originally blue and I think someone sanded the edges down a little to the white to give it a custom look. I actually kindof liked the way it looked but I wanted to stain it and make it my own. So I took it home and stripped the paint and stained it. I painted the pickguard, bought some knobs and a bridge cover and some new strings. It was a really fun project, my first of this kind. I had a blast doing it.
