Yeah my recent blue Tele Partscaster has spent many summer afternoon lounging in the sun. No change yet...
Mine has yellowed up nicely. I reckon it would take a nuclear explosion to fade it to the colour of the CS reissues though

I was hoping to borrow a high-powered UV lamp from work, but apparently, they don'd just lend out lab equipment anymore! :thumbdown: And I thought universities were supposed to encourage curiosity & experimentation... :think:

If your gut instinks tell you something isn't right. You are usually right.

Been waiting for the wife and baby to get out of the house so I can spray nitro and fill the house with toxic fumes.

The instant they leave the house, it starts pouring with rain. Humidity 99%. Dehumidifier can only do so much.

Oh well. Guess Isobel's young lungs will just have to deal with some nitro next week.
