Another Olympic White Strat Relic
Just finished up this beautiful guitar - came out better than I expected. Looks and plays amazing with Bare Knuckle Irish Tour Pickups. The guitar was stripped to bare wood, re-shaped to early 19060's body contours and re-finished in Nitro Olympic White. The body was then aged for 15 hours under UVB light to age the finish to the yellow/amber look of vintage guitars. Finish checking and wear patterns were applied prior to ageing the finish. It turned out to be a very convincing relic job.
