Separate names with a comma.

I thought I was in the wrong forum for a second.
In before the lock!
I agree with wot Balston said. Similar to the word 'hydrauliced'; an aviation term for oil collecting in the lower cylinders of a radial engine, stopping piston movement.
I doubt these words will ever come up in an English degree examination.
You mean the Rolling Stones tribute model?
the proper usage is thus:
"the guitar has been put through the relic process"
a bit clumsy, but still, you completely avoid giving the impression of licking or adding lice (again) to something that way
I can not tell you how many time I have seen "base" drums, and drum sets with "symbols" included on craigslist.
"aged" or "vintage-ized" work for me.
I thought I knew how to spell it, but then I reliced that I may be wrong.
The correct usage is this guitar has been distressed which is how I feel when I see perfectly good guitars ruined by hammers, chisels, other tools and even in some cases fire.
"distressed" is ok but it calls to mind a blue jeans protocol
ArcticWhite wins the thread!
A few years ago, I had a (faux)leather coat that was showing wear and tear. I told my co-worker that it was "relic'd." He told me it was
"distressed." I think he had been around fashionistas.
I think blowtorch may have the right idea.
It's cute whenever people think English has rules
I think the only reason we struggle with this term is that Fender builds a specific line of faux distressed guitars called, "Relic". Plus, "heavy relic" and "journeyman relic". It is just a creative marketing idea, so we can be just as creative with the term. No rules apply as long as you communicate clearly.
Break the rules dammit and rock on.
jimmy crack’d corn
How about arced? Disced? Talced? Sicced? Specced?
I get (hope?) that it's tongue in cheek, but for benefit of our non-native English speakers.... there's no past tense of 'relic' because it's not a verb.
Where I come from it's actually spelled "beat up"
I write relic'd.
The Oxford English dictionary doesn’t recognize “relic” as a verb you plebeians.
Relic'd... next. Mic'd
I should think that of all the countries using the western alphabet, English must be the most difficult to learn in respect of pronunciation. The words: though, rough, bough and cough for example, they all share the last four letters but are spoken entirely differently. Then we've got knife, which isn't pronounced ku-nife and knit, knock and knight...
Pretty much inexplicable.
