Hmmm i might just try that on my Epi sg CB [biggrin]

 

Except, your Epi SG most likely has a Poly finish, so it may

not react that same way. But, with a Nitro Finish, it's (almost)

a certainty. [biggrin] May take several tries, to get the

exact amount, one wants, though. Then again, one attempt might

do it?

Why don't you just get a SG Standard (now, "on sale"), leave it out in the cold,

for an hour or so, then bring it back into your warm house, out of the case, and

the finish will probably crack like that, or even "better," right in front of you,

for FREE! [flapper][biggrin]

So they charge an arm and a leg for putting guitars in a cold store and bringing them back into room temperature? [scared] Perhaps they use a sauna for boosting the effect [biggrin]

 

I don't like any artificially aged guitars. This would be an absolute deal breaker for me. [-(

They probably spray them with some type of liquid gas. That causes the finish to crack instantly.

That's the way my former wife does it in restoration in case a craquelling effect is desired. For finish application using a brush, they blend the solvent with a low-density component. This makes the density of the finish increase during vaporizing, and due to the shrinking coat there will appear lots of fine cracks soon.
