that'll be a somber "no" for me, but thanks for playing
Man-servant to a knight.....why?....looking for a job????
...and right by Strongsville Mall as well!
I just looked at myself in the mirror.
I'm pretty sure that I've been badly relic'ed.
I actually like relics...
That's good news for about 80% of the members here.
And I want you to know mine was come by the old fashioned natural way.
Four daughters and two ex-wives'll do that to a man.
None of my guitars are relics -- That would imply that they are not only old, but also obsolete. Ironically, it would in no way imply that they were abused or worn in any way.
According to Webster:
an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.
synonyms: artifact, historical object, ancient object, antiquity, antique
"a Viking relic"
a part of a deceased holy person's body or belongings kept as an object of reverence.
synonyms: remains, corpse, bones;
"a saint's relics"
an object, custom, or belief that has survived from an earlier time but is now outmoded.
"individualized computer programming and time-sharing would become expensive relics"
Unless electric guitars are somehow evidence of an outmoded past, I don't see how the word "relic" applies.
Now me on the hand -- Clearly evidence of a time gone by!
Smoked Strat. Yuk. Don't mind the neck actually
I’m not into relics.
And that is what is left over after you’ve already scraped up off the floor the other “relic’d” fine instruments.
A couple of years ago, I bought this relic partscaster. Now I'm not particularly into relic guitars, but this particular one "spoke" to me, because it's more of a barncaster type of thing instead of an "artificially worn" relic.
I replaced the neck that was on it with a modern '13 Am. Std. 22 fret neck, that looks like brand new, (glossy in front, satin in back), because the original was as unfinished as the body, which I didn't care for. (visions of it getting filthy from playing...yuk!)
So it looks "hybrid", rather than a full on relic. Under normal circumstances, I would not have purchased this axe, but I made the mistake of picking it up, and playing it, (a good mistake), and Holy Moly, what tone!
It has CS '52 reissue pickups, and it's without a doubt the best sounding Tele I've ever owned! So I got it for the sound it made, even though I was originally attracted to it's appearance. And me, (who likes shiny new looking finishes), I am tickled to own this "relic", It just goes to show, that looks ain't what's important...though it does make it cooler!
I know, not the best pics...a photographer I ain't!
It does though.
In the sense that it looks exactly like a guitar that has been dragged along behind a pickup truck. That kind of road worn.
Who cares? Is a strat.
Well if that's the worst you've seen, bless you!
These experiences can be very traumatic.
...I actually sent Fender customer service a link to an ebay auction for a really horrific CS Fender relic neck that was obviously a fake and bad in every way.
A few weeks later I got an answer from Fender saying it was a legit CS neck.
Just imagine my dismay.
relicing, like online sarcasm, is harder than it looks, and best left to professionals
Are you being sarcastic when you say that?
someday your dictionary may catch up to the fact that inside the guitar industry the word relic is a term of art meaning to artificially age and wear instruments, but until your dictionary catches up, trust me about this as an additional meaning
It’s a typo, it’s not “reliced”, it’s “roasted maple”
Sucks when the lice come back after you got rid of them, but you can't unroast your maple once it's cooked.
I s'pose you can refry it though...
I stopped at Costco in Strongsville yesterday on my way home from our team Christmas lunch. I was a mile or so from that seller. I should have stopped by and taken a look!
If by "road worn" they mean looks like it was dragged behind a truck...
