Looks good so far. What was your aging process?
Black tea followed by Steelwool in vinegar.
That thing is sweet!
I like it, it has a relic feel but instead of abuse it's vandalized. And instead of simply being old it's capturing a slice of time & place.
The anarchy symbol is a nice touch. Dead Kennedys or Blue Oyster Cult logos would fit in nice for my history.
Picnic Table Vandals .... possible band name .... I like the guitar theme.
You need a few initials or names like X+Y heart forevar!!! No regrats. Too hot cast iron frying pan burn circles.
Lighter fluid burned sections.
8675309 and similar song references.
Mustard spill stains
White paint spots like bird droppings.
Oil it with cutting board oil, as if bacon grease spilled on it.
do make sure to sand the guitar with 800grit to make it smooth to the touch for playability.
google picnic table graffiti images...
Needs dried up bubble gum underneath.
That's very kewel.
You can use a few coats of a matte sprayed finish to "lock in" the look a bit without making it "shiny". It should still get some additional patina with handling after that since it would be a very thin coating just to stabilize things a little.
All the parts should arrive Tuesday with the exception of the pickguard which came last night.
I need to put the beat down on it too I suppose.
Use it as a dinner plate for a bit.
reminds me of Alice Coopers "Schools Out" album cover. I think it looks cool AND if you are having fun making it... even better.
That looks like a fun project!
What is the strap going to look like? A plastic tablecloth, maybe?
I don't see anything you have done on this project that four or five passes through a planer wouldn't fix. But hold on - It is your guitar not mine.
I watched a story on CBS Sunday Morning about a New York museum exhibition of Street Graffiti that many people like myself call vandalism, but some of what this story shows in apparently worth upwards of $100,000.00.
If I were back in Austin, I would volunteer to head down to Gruene Hall in Gruene, TX and snap some pictures of the in-door picnic table tops there for inspiration. There is a ton of MoJo, sweat, history and thought provoking scratches and carvings at that place.
But it is your guitar so I'll be following your progress with interest.
What is this shou sugi ban rage that has overtaken the internet? I was doing this in 7th grade woods class (1976) and it was not called that.
I don't know that there is a rage. We did a very mild version at school in '70s. Just a discoloration that popped the wood grain.
The point is: using fire is a viable option.
For cigarette burns, use the barrel of your soldering iron. It's less brutal than fire and more controllable.
We did it in every way. Just a bit to pop the grain and heavily so that it removed a bunch of sap wood leaving a very grain textured piece of wood.
Parts are coming in
Bridge and controls look awesome!
