What's the best way to drill into a painted guitar without cracking thr paint? Obviously a very sharp drill but anything else? Turn the drill CCW to start a point to drill or something?I have a duplicate Strat body that I was going to build into a twin, unfortunately, the build quality of the body (imported) is not up to par with the paint job.
Once I get a decent work area cleaned out, I'm going to have to do some filling and redrilling of a number of holes to make it right.
At some point I'm going to replace my T-style pickguard and it'll have to have a few holes filled and redrilled so I was just wondering. Luckily I realized that if I buy a 5 hole pg, it might work in my favor. Less holes to be out of place and I can add the other 3 with a drill and countersink bit. Thanks, brother!
