Hey guys, just wanted to share this relic job I did on my strat copy. I just haven't seen or heard much about anyone trying to relic a poly finished guitar so I tried it myself (for fun and.. experimentation) The relic job took me about 40 minutes to complete.

Note: I didn't file the paint all the way down to the wood cause it would've left sharp ridges due to the thick poly finish (would be a pain in the ass to play).

Tell me what you think!

looks like paint got chipped off.

most real aging is subtle. it doesnt have large sections of paint & wood missing.
