    Looks nice man, grats! I wasn't into the relics for standard type guitars. Last week a local music shop had a black reliced Strat hanging there and man it really looks awesome first hand. I was checking it out and had to stop myself. lol I'm tempted to buy the fker but I don't need it!


    Grats on a beautiful job.

    OK...the Buttherscotch Blonde's body is almost done. wetsanded yesturday and buffed today, nice and shiny...but will weirdly need to be dulled a bit later on. did a checking test, and checks wonderfully, so that means it cured enought..

    Wow Alain though I am not a big fan of the relic look and have seen hundreds made by the guys on the Fender Forum. Not to blow smoke up your ass lol but from what I see here this is the best work I have seen done outside of Fender themself and way better than there own Roadworn series. What ever technique you have come up with is amazing as they dont have that unatural look. I mean these look natural. Just a great job.
