I am refurbishing an old rectangular bass case to use for another
guitar. I'm at the point where I'm almost ready to put new vinyl on the
outside and new lining and padding on the inside. I know that I need to
have a smooth surface to glue the fabrics to, but is it important to
get every bit of the old glue off the wood, or can I just sand it
smooth and reglue. Most of the glue is gone, but there are a few spots,
particularly along the edges of the insides of the shell where it
curves, that have a pretty good glue accumulation. Thanks.
If you use a contact cement Mark, you don't need to get every bit off. Do
be careful though and get it perfectly flat. Every minor imperfection in
your surface is going to telegraph through the new vinyl.
I've not heard of such a thing posing a problem Mark. Contact cement is
used around wood finishes all of the time. You could always let it air well
for a few days before putting the guitar in it. Our of curiosity - what
kind of guitar?
Hey - a clear case of GAS. You better get that looked at doc. Nice
collection. I used to have a smaller collection of guitars that in one way
or another meant something to me, but... Well, the but about it is really
that I agreed with the wife that I'd get a high end electric and a high end
acoustic, and I'd sell of everything else. So I did. Quite a while ago.
Since then my son has left a Jackson here to be adopted by me but my wife
hasn't figured out that it has really found a home here now. I'm not much
for Jacksons, but for some stuff it does put out a pretty gnarly sound. I
wouldn't have bought this guitar myself, but since it came along the way it
did, I'll keep it. My real electric is from a small manufacturer in N.
, and my acoustic is a Taylor 710CE. It was worth my side of the bargain
with the wife to own these guitars. Heck, now I can even get away with
leaving one out on the couch in the living room for a short time, after I'm
