Hi,

I have a Fender Squier that I am converting from Right to Left hand. It also has some bad dings and a couple cracks in it. When I was pulling the bridge off I thought I had cut deep enough around the bridge, but didn't and ended up pulling up some of the top layer. Top layer as in this is an el cheapo plywood guitar.

So what I though I would do is go ahead and change out the top and backwood as part of the conversion. Some cedar for the top and maybe some mahoghany for the back. Not top end wood by any stetch, just some wood to get it playing.

My questions have to do with taking the top and back wood off of the guitar;

Is there a way to take the top off without taking the fret board all of the way off?

What is the best way to heat up the glued seams ? I have no idea what kind of glue was used on this build probably some type of yellow glue I would imagine. But it is so low end you never know.

I have a heat gun if that can be used.

I already bought my left hand saddle, nut, bridge, and Grover tuners. Just need to fix the top and swap the back.
