    I was at a guys house and he had a tele that was reliced. I asked him how he did it and he said he took all the hardware & electronics off and stuck it in the oven!

    what do you think, I'd love to do this, any thoughts!!

    I've never heard of it, but stranger things have happened.

    I've heard of that too. I've also see botched jobs where the finish just cracks and looks so dumb instead of being a nice looking weather checking.

    I think an hour in the sun is maybe a little safer than the oven!

    I've seen bodies microwaved. Whatever works!

    How do you know when it's done? My microwave doesn't have a guitar setting. It does have one for popcorn, though.

    Would a toaster oven work?

    Just figure out how many bags of popcorn equal the same weight as a tele body and you've got the setting figured out!;)

    Also figure that the cooking will destroy any glue joints, so your body will fall apart.

    That's ok because I'd have to cut mine in two to fit in the microwave. Sounds like a win-win to me.

    In the packaging industry we use heat to run accelerated aging tests. For a 5 year study we use 140 deg F for 16 weeks.
