    Weathered Finishes

    Here's a finish that I've been working on for some time. It has the basic weathering which is the darkening and streaking of the wood, but also thrown in there in various strategic spots is dark red. For the most part it's a natural finish. It's a blend of several oils and some other ingredients to get this effect.

    For the most part it'll just be one or two colors. The combination of blue and purple would be Weathered And Bruised. Red is Weathered And Bloody. Orange would be Weathered And Rusted. Green would be Weathered Copper. Imagine a weathered swirl!

    Anyways, tell me what you think about it, if anything. And of course, enjoy the pics!

    I think that looks very nice! I really like the look of dark stained, weathered woods and this captures it perfectly. I would get one of those.

    Looks great. Very RGD-ish.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    That looks fuckin awesome! I really dig your forearm and lower horn bevels.

    The only thing that i would change is rounding off the lower horn just a bit to match the upper horn.

    never been into finishes like that. I'd rather have a new guitar that looks new and have it get weathered over the next 20 years due to being used every day.

    That being said, I always assumed it would be tough to actually do these finishes without them looking deliberate.
