Im looking for some advice / input on antiquing/aging/breaking/ the poly on my Schecter C-1.
I read an article on Gibson's website about letting the wood breathe to help achieve a better tone.
<a href = http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/finishes-0716-2011/> Article Here </a>
I dont really "care" what the finish of my guitar looks like as long as there are no huge gashes in it that make playing it a pain in the neck. (yeah pun intended)
I understand that aging comes from many years of playing and that tone comes from the fingers and the depth of your wallet. Though if what the article is implying is correct, this could be another thread however small it may be, in the huge patchwork quilt I understand as tone that I dont want to overlook.
I have already taken 800 grit to the neck of my C-1 to alleviate that awful sticky situation back there. Works like a charm btw. Though I would like to apply this to the other surfaces aside from the front of my guitar. Insert care for how it looks here. So that would be the sides and the rest of the back.
I guess what Im looking for here is some input. Yay's or nay's. Do's and dont's. Any of you who have done this and got some tips, pics ect. ect.
Just trying to do as much research as possible to convince myself into doing it.
Did I post this in the wrong place?
