Give your guitar to my 6 year old for a week and you would be amazed, seriously.

I love relics that are done like an artform.

Revelator guitars are the benchmark IMHO. http://www.revelatorguitarworks.com/

I mean, just look at this Strat -- an absolute piece of art! It takes real skills to do it right.

I've never understood why the pickguard would get so crusty looking like that. It looks like 40 year old pizza sauce or pepperoni grease that nobody bothered to clean off. The rest of it looks pretty nice though...love the color.

Take the lice that used to live in the guitar and set them free.

Get a scratch (officially recognised collective noun) of lice and liberate them into your new guitar.

It's now reliced.

PS - make sure to use wood lice.

To somebody, a piece of string dangling in a room is art.... to somebody else...it's just a piece of string dangling in a room. There isn't any right or wrong.

This is why there aren't many threads on relicing. Too many people have bad things to say about every relic.

You could post a picture of a real 50 year old guitar, and tell them its a relic. Everyone would still comment about how fake or poorly done it was.

Then you would have another 15-20 people chime in with their contempt for relics.

Don't understand why people come on the threads if they don't like relics.

I just want to know what that stuff is supposed to be on the pickguard?....I don't think I'm being critical of it other than commenting on the finger cheese or whatever it represents... A pickguard gets yellow and may even get dusty from degrading I guess, but I've never seen what looks like crud on it that couldn't be rubbed off with a little playing. Maybe there's a legit reason? Inquiring minds want to know...:-) And by the way Colt, I had a real '54 LP junior about 10 years ago that looked so much like a '54 junior...you'd never know it was authentic...

And for the record.... I like relics and I think I said that in my post.... every guitar I own looks like one from the inhumane conditions here....

I dont know if that was a joke or serious but that video is HORRIBLE. Everything looked fake and terrible.

What is funny to me (and I LOVE relics) is that if we take a reasonable guitar, say a 68 tele and its all beat up but original. You can get it for almost the same price as a custom shop relic. But a mint 68 tele still demands good money. Its weird that we pay extra for relic work and in the real world natual relic takes away from the value.

Sorry if I misunderstood, but the point I was trying to make is that even people who like relics are extremely critical of everyone they see. Then you have people who don't like them piling on top of that. For this simple reason, no one really wants to post a good relicing thread.
