Hey all, So I have been wondering about relicing on guitars and how to do it and it seems there are many ways to make it look like crap. My question is, once you have got it crap-ed to your liking, how do you keep it in the state of crap without bits flaking off where you don't want it and changing the crap level from just right crap to too crap? basically, say you were doing a Rory Gallagher strat or SRV's no1 or something, once to have it EXACTLY how you want it to look, you don't want the lacquer to start coming off again because of the work done replicating the original. Do you clear coat it? Or does it just stay put? I have never reliced anything so forgive the ignorance, I think relicing guitars that aren't copies of already existing guitars is stupid ("original" relic jobs, as in, not copies of famous guitars, are just a statement) but I am planning the Tony Iommi Old Boy replica and possibly an SRV/Rory Gallagher strat- I can't decide. Cheer's folks.
