So, I am thinking of doing some changes on my 5yr old MIM Tele. I have seen a few road worn Tele's and think the relic'ed stuff is fine... just not for me. Just wondering if freezing/heating the body will result in any amount of checking? The Tele is black with a black pick guard so you would have to be pretty close up to see it. I have alway been a fan of old antique picture frames that have the checking and think the black finish would be sweet... Any thoughts? Even possible?
