1 Toxophilite 1 month ago I recently acquired this 60s Hofner electric 12 string project. It's just a body and a neck. Ready to finsh with some final sanding but needing the headstock holes drilled and then assembly and hardware. Right now I'm looking for tuners.(Anyone have any open back tuners? The original had 12 single tuners) I plan to make a bridge (or adapt one I have), find some tuners (to determine the holes I need) drill the holes do the final sanding and finish, likely blonde as it would be easy. I will start with surface mount pickups though I could do floaters off the neck and pickguard too. The body is all laminate and a thinline body so leaving the top untouched isn't a huge worry. This will be a dedicated electric. I was thinking of finishing with water based finish. Many builders use them on acoustic instruments successfully and though I like nitro finishes, I've done some successfully and much space, ventilation and protection is needed. It's evil stuff. and Covid makes using the space I normally would more awkward. Quietly with no fuss, with a brush and then final sanded and buffed would be fine.
