Hello, been a bit, glad to be back. Today I found a Dillion guitar on craigslist. It's basically a prs knockoff. for $25 I figured it'd be a fun project. Initial impression: feels really solid. Inlays are done well. Logo is pearl inlay on what looks like ebony veneer. fretboard is interesting wood and pearl inlay. made in korea. frets look brand new. neck is straight as an arrow and has a nice profile. Looking at the dillion website it is apparently solid maple neck and body and they sell new somewhere in the $450 range. Ok, so this one is ruff - I believe it has been shot! Literally looks like it took three bullets. So... I have no dreams of any sort of elaborate repair but thought I'd get some feedback/ideas. first off: the veneer is burned through, and given the bullet holes anyway, will have to be stripped. it's a sculpted top so I'm not sure overlaying another veneer is within my skill set but if you've got ideas on that I'm all ears. maybe a paint job would be most realistic. bullet hole fix: 1) dowels. Buy some decent dowel material, drill out the holes, fill em in, fill remaining gaps with epoxy. upside: easy. downside - will have to use some type of filler for backside. OR 2) take my router and trim out 1/4" on top and back to edge of guitar. replace with maple sand to fit. upside: solid wood. downside: more work and removing more original wood thoughts?
