guitar wrecking/restoral

have an old 'checkmate' acoustic/classical style guitar from around 1969 - a Japanese mass produced effort so nothing special. thought I'd make some attempt at customising it/restoring it/could be ruining it forever, ha.
started this on the 16th February 2013, 3 months ago. here's the original:

see that bit of paper underneath the A string second from right, reckon that's been there since 1970. but without it the string buzzes, so will have to get a new nut. 

6th April 2013: and the sanding begins....

14th April 2013: finally got the fucker apart...
after much chisel knifing and malleting:

and a little bit of repair work:

that's all for now.
