Assembled a 62-63 round lam spec black strat for myself, and decided to age it as I went. My first time aging a guitar. I used a 58 Strat and Clapton's Blackie (wear-through on back, not so much on the front) as a template for what I was trying to do. Never did it before and didn't realize how fun it would be. Nice 7 lbs 3 oz Strat, Guitar Mill maple/brw lam neck, USACG alder body (was 3 lbs 6 oz with finish). Body was checked with the freezer to oven method, and the neck was aged with everything - it got oil, lacquer, shoe gunk, transtint dye, and lots of sanding back. The hardware got vinegar fumes mostly. The plastic got sandpaper and vinegar fumes and heat and dye and shoe gunk.
