Strat Upgrades.


Recommended Posts


It's been a while since I was on so I thought I'd ask a few questions. First off I now have a Mexican made strat, the question I have is does anyone have any good relic-ing tips to make it look more like Clapton's Blackie? By relic, I don't want to ruin the body at all, just age the removeable pieces, such as the knobs, back plate and tuners.

There are a couple of things you can do depending on what look you're going for. If you want a yellowish tinge to the guard and knobs, you can try the neck amber from Guitar Reranch. Or if you want a brownish tinge, try letting them sit in coffee. Just make sure the coffee isn't hot though. I made that mistake and ruined my knobs and pup covers.
