Harley Benton PB50 Headstock reshaping

Recommended Posts

I asked a friend for ideas for how to reshape the headstock of my PB50. He suggested using an angle grinder with a velcro sanding pad and various grades of abrasive. I would never have thought of this and had no idea of how well it would work, but as he had the necessary tools and offered to do the job, I took the neck over to his place yesterday and he had a go.


I think it came out really well. I just need to do a bit of hand sanding and it will be ready for refinishing.

I used a superfine sanding pad to remove the remaining parts of of the logo. This came off easily and the face of the headstock still has a complete layer of the original thin finish, so it won't need any additional finishing before applying a waterslide decal.


I have ordered a new decal from voodoo decals in Portugal. He doesn't have any harley benton ones so I had to order a Fender Precsion bass (1957 style) one instead!
