Rebuilt Guitars #3

These old guitars were built by Tiesco and sold by Sears. The pickups are collectible and traded. The rest not so much.

I replaced the tuners, straightened and leveled the neck and fretboard, and used electrolysis to get the rust off the bridge components.

The finish on the body was impregnable. I concocted a paint-over scheme that turned out pretty well. But not easy.

Nice vintage sound. Everything works and plays. But these were never great guitars so nostalgia has to count for something.
