I once owned a Charvel custom shop that was finished in something they called "burned in hell"....but this damn thing looks like it was cremated and didn't make it that far lol
In fairness, the whole thread is kinda retarded (understatement of the year). Don't like relics ? No one is making you play one at gunpoint, so just move along and don't feel the drive to blather about them as if your tastes were in any way superior to anyone else's.Getting annoyed with relic finishes is no different than getting annoyed at sunburst finishes. Silly.
Ball Peen JohnsonI agree with you Ball Peen Johnson... wait a minute, Ball Peen Johnson, that sounds like a good band name...or a terrible situation! Jk about the name Sledge Johnson, though I do agree with your opinion on relics. Cheers.
While I have never had a chance to play a relic'd guitar by a company like Fender, and never having owned one, I ordered and received a year later, a M2M '59 ES-355 done in watermelon red and an ultra-light age Murphy finish.indeed. i do however like the nitro thats relic'ed that allows you to continue to "wear it in" over the life time
I like relic’d guitars. I like the way they look and feel. Poser? Total bullshit, That means Joe Perry, Richie Sambora, Brad Whitford, Joe B, just to name a few are posers. I agree…..its a finish choice.What say you?
Any blemishes or finish faults on my guitars were earned honestly... by me !
