What i did was sand down the clear lacquer of the body a little, and let gods of rocking out do the rest of the job.

a lil info on the guitar, its a partocaster


rosewood finger board neck has a nitro finish that alreasy started to peel on the back
alder MIM Body
all fender parts

I build it to my own liking and i also wanted a telecaster combination that is not seen much black on white with rosewood neck

this is a month after the sanding down of the clear coat, tell me if this is a win or fail ;

That's pretty cool. Really light relic'ing. I wouldn't have touched the neck since I'm really careful with mine. But I think it's pretty cool/

Good idea here, it will really show your natural wear in real spots, just sped way up. Good bridge between do-it-yourself after 50 years and do-it-yourself in an afternoon.

I suppose you could relic by sanding. There are other ways, too...

I'd imagine that would work pretty damn quickly.

What grit paper did you use to sand the clear coat off? I kinda wanna do that to my strat.


320grit dry and by hand, also i sand it with the hardware on (around it) so it looks like real 50s telecaster were under the pickguard still looks new
