So, I acquired a nice USA made Peavey Axcelerator from the 90's for 50$ but it's in bad condition, the neck is unfretted, which is a problem, but it has good looking brass locking tuners and brass bridge.
The body itself has good contours and a weird metal plug in the neck joint, now because the neck is unfretted i'm guessing i'll have to replace it for now with another strat neck I have, but i'm not sure what the metal plug thingy does or if will it be problematic, maybe someone knows what i'm talking about, the neck has a matching plug aswell.
Now, I'm thinking about sanding the poly finish but I can't tell what kind of wood i'll find down there, the original finish is all black but has scratch marks and dings and overall it looks bad, maybe someone knows what wood is beeing used here? .
thanks for the help guys!, HC is the best place to get info on this things
(btw, ordered new electronics and jimi hendrix's pups from gfs )
