Hi all! First post on this forum in a long time! Just scored this beautiful road worn Tele on Reverb. It already has some killer upgrades such as Lollar pickups and brass saddles, and I just ordered a distressed Bakelite guard from Callaham. I’ve seen a couple of members here use shoe polishes/dyes to make the checking stand out, and I’ve also seen some nightmare finish problems that have resulted from this. Any advice for really accentuating the checking? Any other mod suggestions are welcome!
