Not too bad.

I think what it needs is more fading and grime on the finished part. It needs to flow together more if you know what I mean.

I think the wear itself looks good. the color looks a bit light to me. OTOH, if it's too dark, it looks fake.


i like it!

I have a guitar that is just starting to lose the finish on the back of the neck. It took about 15 years of hard play to get the little bit of wear on the nitro. That must simulate about 30 - 40 years of play.
