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 ;-)
