Prompted by @clinton's finniting post/discussion, I'm tempted to finnit this one.

There's nothing *wrong* with it.  It's just that I don't love it.

The neck is fine, feels good, plays nicely.  The hardware is all OK and the pickups sound good.

I don't like the top.  Sorry top!  Beauty is in the eye, etc.  It's a flat cap (no carving, just an edge round-over), and the colour never quite turned out how I wanted.

So, I'm considering removing the cap and putting a different one on.  I'd take a bit more off the body too, so I could add a thicker cap with a bit of carving.  That should allow me to get a bridge back on it at the right height for the neck angle (don't much fancy trying to remove the neck, so the rebuild would take place with the neck where it is!).

Or am I just being daft ...

You're being Daft. It is what it is. The process of making it took you there. Love it like it's your ugly child. 😆 😆

I've already re-capped it once.  The first time, I'd tried recessing a different bridge into the body, but it hadn't worked very well, so it removed the cap and put this one on it.  

There's nothing *wrong* with it - just that it's not the first (or second, or third, or etc) guitar that I reach for to play!

Thanks @clinton

 

Perhaps I'll tuck it away in a dusty corner for a while and look at it again in a month or three.

I like it Tony. I'm a fan of red. Remember that it's still one of your babies. Reach for it more often and it may grow on you.

🙂 @Russ ...

I've stuck it away in a gigbag now.  Perhaps absence will make the heart grow fonder!

If you don't like it, just make a new one.
