Hey ma dudes, People have been asking me about how I went about relicing/aging my strat. So heres an indepth analysis of how I went about doing it. So I started relicing my strat in December of 2017, its been a very slow process so to anyone who wants to relic their guitars, I'd reccomend doing it very slowly, you can add to the relic, you cant reverse it. I also constantly referred to pictures of athentic 1950/60's strats to make sure the reclic was authentic. I'll start with the neck and headstock being and I'll move down the guitar. This wasn't the order in which I did it however, otherwise this post would be a mess. NECK AND FRETBOARD: For the headstock I used scissors and screwdrivers to chip the paint. For the headstock, I used steel wool, sandpaper (250 grit) and a dish scourer to dull the tuning pegs. For the neck I sanded off the finish with 250 grit sandpaper to get rid of the poly finish on the back and then 1000 grit to smooth it out. I decided to do this as I love the feel of a natural neck and also it looks cool af! To give it that authentic aged look I then used graphite from a pencil to darken the bare wood. Yesterday I also started to dull the fretboard, this isn't a finished job yet but I did this by scraping some steel wool along the most played parts of the fretboard, again looking at authentic strats to see where the ware marks would commonly occur. BODY: Moving onto the body, I'll try and keep this short... I dulled the finish by using 2000 grit sandpaper and a green scourer. Regarding the relic, I see it as two different typed of relicing, 'dings' and 'ware' marks. To achieve the dings I went to town on the body by hitting it with a screwdriver. I also used the screwdriver and added marks just underneath the intunation screws, as that seems to be a common in relic strats. Regarding the ware marks (by ware marks, I mean where my body would touch the guitar (picking arm, belt buckle rash etc)). Again, I can't stress this enough, I took this part really slow as to not over do it. I used sandpaper 250 grit to further ware the finish and then scraped it away using scissors to make the ware marks more jagged and authentic. Cont in comment

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa! Get a load of this! @fraserguitars built this beast entirely out of 40,000 matchsticks. Not covered in matchsticks, entirely crafted out of matchsticks. Impressive! - #ToneMob #matchstickmen #stratocaster #gearnerds #strat #handmade #guitargear
