I have just recently come into possession of a '83 Peavey T-40 and I wanted to restore it. Now because I wouldn't have anywhere near the amount of money it'd cost me to send it out to get it done, I was wondering if maybe I could ask questions about it. I have to re-sand everything (it's all banged up and dents everywhere), and wanted to stain it with an espresso stain (the wood is ash and the meck is maple) ----Progress thus far is the body is sanded down to 320... but I'm stuck on what to do with this all maple neck. What should I do? There's a bit of wear on the first 8 frets! how should I take care of this gorgeous beauty?
