So I have an old Harmony guitar body that I would like to try to do something with...its an OM sized box but I would like to try to disassemble it an and make a 00 size guitar out of it. Yes I realize that this is probably an inefficient way to go about it but I'm just interested in giving it a try and coming out with a new guitar that has vintage wood throughout. So my question is this....can I disassemble this guitar and reshape/trim the sides to make a smaller body? I assume that to do this I would have to strip of the existing finish and apply some heat....and or Moisture to loosen up the wood before reshaping?
What do you think...possible....or not?
