I love the reliced look you achieve. Maybe I am interested in this because my ability to produce a clean conventional finish is very poor - and I realize I should work on that. However, the ability to produce something that looks plausible used and worn is also something that I am interested in. What are your relicing secrets? Like spilling a cup of warm sweet tea on it, or dragging behind a motorbike, or using trained rodents?
All tips gratefully received

I didn't finish it. There is an old feller where I hail from who spent the last 40 years or so making "replicas." So he's pretty good at making them look old. He did it. But as far as I can gather, the tools of the trade are a freezer, a sandblaster and a bottle of bitumen. You'd have to look on the electric guitar builder forums to learn more.
