I am NOT a fan of "relic" or "aged" guitar finishes. Play the guitar until your fingers bleed,drag it around to gigs for a while. Then you have a guitar with real mojo, and honest wear. It seems like cheating when a new guitar is relic finished. My opinion, you gotta EARN the beat up guitar look, not take a bunch of power tools to a brand new finish. The benefit of playing a guitar until it's worn, you practiced and played a lot, and probably became a good player. Do you agree or disagree, and why?
