Do you already have the parts and are replacing them?

There are guidelines all around the internet on how to relic parts.

That SUCKS!!! Great argument for capital punishment.

Anyway, if you can't find these parts relic'd you can probably buy affordable copies of them new from Allparts.

yeah i know it had alot of sentimental value as well being as my DECEASED GRANDFATHER gave it to me and taught me how to put one together on it.

though tbh price really isnt an object. i've got about 1500 to from tax returns to spend on it. once i find the right guitar on craigslist

Don't buy pre-relic parts. They never look convincing, not least of all because there's no continuity between them.

The best way to get a convincing relic look is to assemble the guitar as a perfectly-working, good condition guitar, then trash it. Use a thin wash of black tea for stains, or a quick spray of lightly tinted nitro. Plastic parts can be aged by leaving them exposed to UV light. Finishes can be made to check by subjecting the body to drastic changes in temperature. Hardware can be made to rust and tarnish in a way which won't damage the playability by simply scouring them with a brillo pad and letting the natural oils and acids in your skin do the work. Fling a bunch of keys at the guitar to create small dents and chips.
