This looks a good buy for a Rory relic.

You'll just have to add the eagles head, to make it look really Roryized ;)

Rock on for Rory

Couple of questions for Liam if you dont mind answering. Do you have any advice as to how to darken a rosewood board to look like Rorys?
In many pictures of the Strat in later years it look almost Grey in colour. What did it look like close up? Cheers Derek

While I'm not an expert at relicing guitars or doing Rory strats like Liam, but many people to darken their rosewood fretboard use a darker stain (though you have to be careful, as it could end up looking like an Ebony fretboard if you use too dark a stain, many guitarists (for some reason) will stain their rosewood fretboard black to emulate the looks of ebony) on top of the fretboard, though I've heard of people using shoe polish and other such things.

Thanks for the reply Mate I like the ebonised look. Most of the sixtes rosewood boards seem to look very dark with age.
