There are many different websites out there that focus on teaching you how to make your own relic guitar. One of these is a part of the Wonder How To website. Wonder How To has many different instructional videos on all sorts of topics—you can learn everything from how to cook certain dishes to how to do magic tricks and use computer programs. Wonder How To also has a section on guitars, including how to play various songs and how to create your own SRV Stratocaster relic guitar.
The Wonder How To SRV (Stevie Ray Vaughn) Stratocaster video series consists of ten different videos. Each is narrated by Rolijen, the creator of the series. He begins by talking about how to select the proper body to use in building your relic guitar. He then moves on to outline the various parts and tools you’ll need. He will then guide you step by step through the entire process of creating your SRV Stratocaster relic guitar, even giving you some tips on tuning it at the end.
The videos themselves are fairly clear and easy to follow. Rolijen does a pretty good job of detailing how to make your relic guitar. Unless you have a laptop or a good sized work area near your desktop computer, though, you may find it easier to follow instructions that you can print out. Also note that part one of the series actually contains both part 1 and part 2 (bodies and necks, respectively).
