I was given a VANTAGE strat copy, and i actually wanted to sell it. But my cousin who gave it to me does not want me to sell it.... its not worth much anyway.
It is about 8 years old ( could be younger or older)
And is pratically scratch free, im guessing because my cousin didnt plat it that much...

It has a sunburst poly finish. Its plastic parts are quite aged anyway and are yellowing so i dont need to do much to that. Its headstock is black and is "covered" with a thin laywer of plastic... so ot much i can to to that either...

So how should i go about relicing the body... WITHOUT removing any parts... cos im lazy and afraid to do so...

so i couls use sand paper, keys and what ever. ... any suggestions? could i use turpintine? or nail polish remover or anything else?

nvm i've already reliced it... sanded it down ... ow you can see bits of the wood..

i've also scratched and dinged it.... but i think i need more sandpaper or at least 2000grit sanpaper cos im using 1200 no and its not fine enough...

Yeh, if your gunna fake it, please try and do a semi-decent (which is pretty nigh on impossible when faking it) job and use a fine paper, if you dont it'll look exactly like sandpaper marks and scratches, you want a more 'worn paint' look.
