i have this squire strat sitting around. im not really interested in upgrading electronics but id like to give it a personal touch.

im debating on either relicizing it, or staining it.

sorry the pic didnt work, all my pics are formatted to big.
this isnt MY guitar but its pretty much exactly like it:

the problem i have is that im not crazy about the red that it is. id like more of a blonde or vintage white color.
ive also heard that guitars that arent nitrocellulose dont look very good when relic'd.

Dont relic it, relicing is lame.

Is it a affinity? If it is, try to go for a natural finish. Just sand all the paint off, and check the wood grain.
I have no idea what I'm talking about. Don't belive me.

Yeah, Elderly is awesome. I love that place... Anyway, the natural finish should look cool. I've always wanted a guitar like that.
