Any one know of a method to make artificial tobacco stains on a pickguard?

Why don;'t you just do it in the real way?

Where would "natural" tobacco stains come from? In your normal playing, when have you ever had a tobacco stain appear on your pickguard?


I hope youre not being serious.

pickguards don't take staining too well. Other plastic parts do, but generally pickgaurds don't. Tabacco being used to stain isn't something I've heard about, but I standed some knobs with Coffee and Tea and it worked out.

I'm being serious. Can you answer my questions?

wow thanks for completely blowing off my post.
In anycase, I don't quite understand this "tabacco" stain idea... is it supposed to stain it like smoke does, or do the leaves actually get dissolved and then used? I'm not sure. I'm sure, you could somehow rig up a box filled with smoke or something.

Tea and Coffee, though, that's the key for staining plastic parts, but like I said, most pickgaurds don't do it well. Most pickgaurds today don't stain too easily. I know tortoise shell and peraloid generally will, but white, parchment and aged ones generally won't, it has to do with the material used. I've got an old perloid guard that's stained this nasty vintage aged yellow from smoking around the bass, sun light exposure and stage lights, but I've also got a white pickguard off a strat that's older than that that still looks new.

I'm pretty much saying, "what material is your pickguard?" and "You're better off buying one the color you want."

I don't think this was directed at me but I was quoted? The op didn't answer my questions, just to be clear.

yes, it did. pickguards don't stain well, it just wasn't the answer you wanted.

I didn't "blow off" your post. It just wasn't the answer to the question I asked the OP. Of course it wasn't the answer I wanted. If I asked for the answer to 2+2, I don't want to hear 5. I want the correct answer. So I'm sure the OP appreciates your info but it didn't help me at all.

The OP answered the question with his last post. Little_Buster, I think there might be a couple of relic'ing threads around that may help. But I imagine lots of light, and perhaps in a chain smoker's house will work pretty good.
