Perhaps I have an untrained eye, but what I see leads me to believe it was "homemade"
I was in Paris when ripped jeans were the thing to have (three years ago). You don't have much time. Buy ripped jeans if you think you must but the clock is ticking on them. They'll soon be passee, even here.
You haven't figured out by now that people are generally stupid and full of ****?
It definitely is. And it's not a very convincing relic job.
Ah relics. The guitars that were never new.
I'm a total hypocrite when it comes to relics. I think the whole idea of ruining a perfectly good instrument to fake character is silly. And yet I have two relics that I love.
The first because I had an early 90's MIJ 62 RI that was showing legitimate age/wear & tear everywhere but the poly body. Every year it looked more & more strange until I bought a used aftermarket relic'd body. Then I came across a beat up Hwy 1 body & figured cool, now the guitar will be 100% Fender again. Only the first one sounded so sweet unplugged (almost acoustic like) I didn't get rid of it. Instead I put together another & unplugged it's even nicer.
The two of them are hands down the best sounding electric guitars I've ever owned (unplugged). I stand by earlier statements that how a guitar sounds unplugged doesn't contribute much to your out the amp sound. I also believe these two very lightweight alder guitars would sound just as nice without scratches and dents.
I have named this guitar "DeadMint".
This one's name is "Asnew".
Apparently some (not all) guitars are referred to by some people as being MINTY flavor. What the!
And everyone in prison is innocent.
It's how the world works.
It's just that I deeply appreciate "nice things" and do not understand "relicing". Many things I bought 25 yrs ago look mint. I need to get a photo of my 03 explorer for an earlier thread bout door dents. Take care of your things, and they take care of you.
