yea im doing the same thing for my strat but I have a squier so im not really afraid to let it roll of the stairs a couple of times to get like nice uneven scratches/dents. If you have a higher end guitar then try and find a better way to get them.

you could buy a vintage model from fender.
Also pickups and knobs that have a slightly different wornout colour makes for a good vintage look. maybe you could also sand a bit of the layer of so you get to see some of the wood ?

of course you could also go touring for 20 years or so then you would get a similar effect smile.gif
