Finally I decided to concur in the GOTM but part of the text appears highlighted and don't like very much but don't know how to correct it...If someone helps me I'll be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

That's just madness! Great that it got through the finishing post in perfect form. Time to GOTM her I think. 🤔

Thank you Prostheta, Maybe I'll concur on the GOTM of October because I want a friend of mine to take some pics of the whole guitar.

Man, the details in your builds are exquisite! That thing screams hot rod....in all meanings of the term. I love the gear shift pattern in the pick guard.

I've been a bit distracted this last couple of weeks so had missed this.  It is jaw-droppingly good!  Beautiful, beautiful guitar :)

Simply gorgeous!  Being a car guy, I adore the Ferrari shift-gate detail.

Thank you so much guys for your words and for your time. I promise a little surprise coming soon with this guitar. Stay tuned!!!

I've returned the relic strato style guitar. I've been finishing the neck with nitrocellulose and adding my surname in the headstock with a decal I made on my own with my laser printer. I painted the gold effect with a marker pen. The rear of the neck, I painted only the headstock and the heel, the center didn't and use a dirty cloth with dust and coal and rubbed against the neck, then I applyed oil for protecting the wood. For the body I've used black nitro and made plastic templates which I cut with a hot wire machine I built for this purpose. The target is to leave the wood visible in determinate zones, but doing it the most realistic as possible. The method seems to work perfect. After that I'll apply a gloss finish and do some scratches (no great polish work). The guitar is a replica of the same guitar that Matthias Jabs of Scorpions used in the 90's and which you can see in my profile pic. Is not easy a relic guitar, almost most difficult I had thought. Some pics of the advances:

I'm going to try tu put a video about how I did the decals for the headstock. Is really easy for those of you who need one. I bough some decal sheets in Amazon, did the design and painted gold with a marker pen, the rest is as you can see in the video. Hope it can be helpful.
