Aging Plastic Guitar Parts with UV Light – Day Two

Ok, so it’s the second day of my little experiment where I am trying my hand at aging plastic guitar parts using UV light, and to be honest folks, I am still not seeing any noticeable differences.

I took a couple of pics under different lighting to try to get a good perspective and see if the angle of the light hitting the pick-up covers made a difference, but honestly, if there is a difference I can’t see it.

I am just starting to wonder how effective this really is, and if there is a change taking place how long it is going to take before I am happy with the results. Lucky I am using rechargeable batteries.

There is a couple of things that are running through my mind that might improve the results…

  • I could leave the parts in the Sun all day and put them under the UV light at night.
  • Get a more powerful UV light.

In the past I have tried leaving pick-up covers in direct sunlight before and haven’t seen any real difference in a short period of time, with this project I am looking for the most effective way to age the plastic without it taking forever, I basically want to replicate the natural aging process but at a faster rate.

I will give this UV torch till the end of the week, if I don’t see any difference I will look at getting a more powerful globe, unless I come up with another bright idea that will help give me the results I want.

Stay Tuned.
