Relicing the Back of a Guitar Neck with Shoe Polish

Ok, so I thought while I was waiting for the PUP covers to age with my little UV experiment, I would try my hand at relicing the back of a guitar neck with shoe polish. I wanted that real aged look to the sanded parts, specifically on this post, the back of the neck, and the only thing I could think of that would do the job was shoe polish of all things.

Here’s a video explaining what I am doing and a small sample of the result. Sorry about the dodgy recording, I am filming straight from my laptop and I am finding it really hard to get a decent shot while I am working and filming at the same time….
