well i just got a squier 51,and i want to fix up my old guitar some (bc rich bronze warlock) and if youve ever seen a bc rich warlock youd know it comes to 2 points at the bottom but mine got smashed in from when my brother tried playing it drunk and dropped it. how would i go about fixing this without ruining the guitar?and does anybody have any suggestins on a color design for a new paint job? im thinking about something involving purple because ive never seen a purple bc rich warlock.

depends how smashed it is. maybe you could do it but it might look funny. i am thinking like really badly smashed points you'd have to reshape

you probably could use a file but it would take a butt load of time go to your school and ask the wood shop teacher to use their bandsaw

thats ghetto just use yours and go through the office they wont care if your from the middle school. I dont see why they would your tax dollars go to both the whole District. Unless of course you go to a private/chatholic school but then your tax dollars still go to the publuic schools. And that is me rambling on about stupid things to do.

you could power sand it down. Or, you could go and buy a cheap hand saw. Some times you can find them for a couple of bucks.

Hold on you cant just go takeing it off with a band saw a sander of anything else whatever it is. That will mean you will be left with a bit missing. I thought you wanted to fix it not butcher it? If you have dropped it and broken the points whever they may be then you need to glue them back of if you no longer have them they you have to craft more wood to the spot where they were and shape it again. Please dont just offfer the f*cker up to a band saw or power sander. youll f*ck it right up. Do if proper of your gonna do it.

Well your never going to do that by sanding you wont get a flat enough surface for the joint.

You won't get much for a cheap butchered Bc rich anywhere. The best you can do is make the guitar presentable again and keep it to play yourself. It seems like you don't really know what your doing either so maybe you should leave it a while or get someone you know to help you out.
If your set on working on it check out projectguitar.com for some good info.
