    I got a used VM Olimpic white with maple fretboard on CL a few weeks back.
    It had a dent on the top and then I put a huge dent in it when it fell off the couch when I turned away.:mad:
    I was going to paint it but now I had to paint it.
    I filled in the holes with wood filler but every time I tried to sand it down I would take more wood than filler.
    I ended up using a bondo type filler, allot easier to work with.
    After I fixed the dents I gave it to a good friend of mine (Car Painter). He painted it Pearl for me.
    This is the result. I also added:
    • Covers
    • '62 Precision Bass pickup
    • Thumb rest
    • Electronics
    • Knobs
    • Plate cover
