Got a 1964 Mustang bridge to pop on it. The staytrem was a cool option, but I think the Mustang bridge should be ok and was cheaper. Friday I am picking up some sandpaper to prep the body for mailing to Danocaster. I am nervous about taking it apart. I am sure it is not going to be a big deal, but I am always nervous with my older guitars. I am going to screw my tortoise guard to a piece of wood to keep it from potentially shrinking. Any tips ahead of time for dissassembly? I have built guitars and such, but wanted to see if there are any special things to keep in mind when taking apart a vintage guitar.

don't get drunk first. don't use an electric screwdriver. put all the bits into labelled ziploc bags with a note of which part of the guitar they're from.

good call with the guard. with the 62 jag i worked on years ago the second i took off the guard i instantly regretted it cuz it was a mother fucker to get back on, it had shrunk around the pickups and it took alot of wibbly wobbly bullshit to get it back on.

To do matching headstock or not.... I have a good decal I could use for it. Not a perfect match though. My stock decal has three PAT's and my replacement only has two.

I've never understood the original decal thing if it's getting a refin, it might make resale come down a touch but if it's a dano refin it could counter

Don't paint the headstock. Vintage guitars look way cooler with the plain headstock.

If you really wanted a matching headstock you could always sell off the neck with the complete logo on it and buy one on ebay with the logo missing. That way you'll be making a little bit of money rather than lowering the value of the one you have.
