Yngwie "duck" replica

So I am just finishing up this guitar and thought maybe some of you would get a kick out of it.







The relicing is 98% done just have a few things to do here and there, but for the most part its done. I think its as close as anybody aside from Fender who actually had the guitar will get. All the hardware is from a 72 strat as well, so in a way mine is more accurate then Fenders.

Nobody would happen to be interested in this guitar would they?

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

those scallops look very deep..I think I read in an interview somewhere that the scallops on that guitar are actually considerably more shallow than the ones on his production models.

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

Yeah the scallops on mine are kinda deep, Reason being is because I read Yngwie loved the way the guitar sounded but hated how it played because of the shallow scallops. So I remedied that "problem" on my replica, so I call it the ideal Yngwie "duck" replica.

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

Andy was that post to show my color is wrong or was it to show how damn accurate my relicing was? I still have clear coating to do so I can slightly tint that to make it a pinch more yellow. But I have a very difficult time capturing the true color of the guitar. I would say the back picture I posted is the closest, its just a pinch more orange in real life though.

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

Yeah I am gonna ding it up a bit and get some misc chips and stuff put on before I clear coat it. Then after I clear it I will "check" the paint and dirty it up. The neck is still only about 70% done. I would tell you guys how I did the relicing, but then Id have to kill ya ;-). I took a page out of Fenders trick book and it worked lol.

Thanks for the compliments guys, there isnt any clear on it like I said so if you have any suggestions let me know!

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

The orange in the neck is way too orange for my taste... makes it look fake instead of old... And is the orange paint supposed to be on the frets themselves?

The body looks great beat up as it is, congrats!

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

Why do companies charge so much for replicas when people are capable of much better at the home office?
Yours looks much more appealing, I love the wear lines on the pickguard!

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

Indeed,.. the necks looks weird. The wear does not look realistic. The body looks good to me, pickguard is a little over the top. But the neck is the main issue in my opinion, if you can redo it, the whole guitar would seem better as a result.

Re: Yngwie "duck" replica

The pickguard is not done, I still need to take alot of the color out so its more faint. Everything will look the way its supposed to when the guitar is finished, right now its more of a rough draft that will be refined in the next few weeks. I still have to rust the hardware and take the shine off of the output jack. But other then the output jack everything is already from a 72 Strat, not a reissue so it already looks genuinely old.

I thought about redoing the neck, because I agree it looks a bit too "orange" but in my opinion the Fender looks too yellow. I haven't scraped the frets yet so that is why they are orange. If I was to leave the color as is on the neck its only 70% reliced anyway so when its done do you think it will still look fake when I made the body look so accurate?

Prydogga- While some people might be able to get close using "their" method of relicing, I am able to get far superior results with my method. I also agree that major companies charge way too much for their "replicas" when people like me can produce them for a 4th of the cost and be more accurate in the end.

Don't worry guys I didnt go through all the effort trying to nail the body just to let everything else slide by ;-)
