Guitar Facelift

Hi has anyone used the guitar face-lift developed by Rick Parfitt basically its a plastic cover designed to fit Telecaster and Stratocaster type guitars precision cut and supported by Fender you peel of the design from the backing paper and place it onto you guitar its low adhesive & when you want a change just peel it off and put it back on the paper, Rick was showing his guitar collection on a you tube clip and 3 of them had the face lift one was a union jack design the other was a worn white Tele like his show Tele the other was a replica of Francis Rossi Tele they cost about ÂŁ20 i think, not sure if they are still available following his death will have to check the internet maybe a xmas present for the guitar player who has everything.

Checked the web site looks like its not active pity they had some good designs.

Managed to contact Mike Hrano Rick Parfitt`s business partner and the web site is being updated if you type in guitarfacelift .com go to the site click on products you can see some of the designs.

Hi John,
It’s good that you keep enthusiasts informed about this, but I see that you have already opened 3 topics on this subject, it is better to post this together next time, that is easier for the people who are interested in this and it makes for a slightly clearer community… I will ask one of the moderators to merge them, @Richard_close2u

Kind regards,Rogier


Oh OK thanks bit new to all this


@Guitarman63 Hi John
Threads can get buried pretty quickly here so the easiest way to find a topic you have started and want to add to it is to Click on your avatar in the upper right and then click on the Head and Shoulders icon at the bottom of the drop down menu. Click on activity, this will bring up all your posts. You can then scroll down to the one you want to add to and open it.
Hope this helps.


Back to the topic…

I actually bought one of these for my daughter’s Yamaha Pacifica several years ago in the mistaken belief it might encourage her to practice.

It did not.

But that is no fault of the product.

The product itself is good. It fits on the guitar easily and is easy to remove. I think it was the Applause one I got.

It’s a bit OTT for me personally, but if you like the designs, then I can’t see a reason not to try them.



got it thanks
