    Better than beating it up or scratching it up--it will look more natural.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Putting it in salt water would definitely speed up the process

    Lot's of salt in the air here on the west coast. I looked at the tuners yesterday and they look a hundred years old already and they have only been out for a month. I get a lot of requests for this relic stuff so I decided to take a shot at it. Not going to install my cast iron octopus on this project but you guys got me thinking.

    If you are into relic guitars--hey, that's your thing--but may as well get them done properly--lots of horrible relic jobs online...

    I think we've posted a few...
    And I have seen threads on other forums for bad relic jobs.
