Thank you. My viewpoint is the same, with some exceptions. If its a replica of an old instrument, and done RIGHT, that's fine. Relicing a poly finished guitar just looks bad. It's not reliced. It's just f******d up. Things like finish checking and yellowing are cool effects that we might not get to see unless they are "nudged" a little. Personal taste always wins. If its your guitar, do what you want with it.
