A New Relic Project on my Aria Pro II Strikin Sounds

Doing a Relic on a guitar is something I have been wanting to do for some time, I have finally bit the bullet and decided the Ari Pro II Striking Sounds is going to be my guinea pig.

Here’s a short video I did this morning while at work, explaining why I decided to use this guitar for this particular relic project.

I know a lot of these relics you see can look either really good or really, really bad, I am hoping that I can do a half decent job on his one so I don’t have to hang my head in shame every time some one asks about the guitar in question.

Here are a couple of pics I have “Borrowed” to base my relic job off.

This next picture is probably on the heavy Relic side, but looks pretty cool in any case…

Here is a pretty cool looking Eric Johnson Strat….. I like the fingermarks on the fretboard, but it is just a bit on the too heavy side.

and finally, here’s a great looking Fender Custom Shop 56 heavy relic, I really like the neck on this one, it doesn’t look overdone, so if I can get a similar look on my Aria Pro II I would be pretty happy..
