¡Bueno!™ After not quite being against them but confused about the concept I'm really starting to dig them! I've been considering getting down to one killer Telecaster and been looking at Limited 70th Anniversary Broadcasters. The non relics are cool AND cheaper but I can't figure out why I want the relics....heavy relics even! I make jewelry and while I rarely relic it I always make it look older; never bright and shiny. If I'm bored I'll even relic tools for fun! I recall getting a geologist pick and it it was shiny steel and coated in lacquer! I stripped the lacquer and soaked in it a bucket of water for a few days! I've doing this with stuff for years! Even did it with some custom cabinets I made. For some stuff it really makes a positive difference.... But for guitars....Why am I drawn to these...?!
