A nice subtle relic job on this one........

Seems fair enough to me - why waste time with sandpaper when you have a flame thrower sitting there unused?

Looks like somebody had a "Hendrix at Monterey" moment.

I grieve for weeks when i scratch one of mine, if I did that relic job I'd have a nervous breakdown.

Guitar OCD and proud to be...

More like "Hendrix as a guest star in The Towering Inferno".

Relic's amuse me, especially if they get dinged / scratched after puchase, and it's time for selling....what do they say?

has a few extra dings and scratches, no longer mint condition anymore?

Especially these relic collector jobs, that would have to be locked away in fear of getting an extra scratch to void it's mint condition

Coz the eagle eye collector will be on it in a flash...oh there is a 4mm scratch on the left corner bla bla...sorry but i want a mint relic'ed one eg...these collectors probably know that a fender custom shop relic and aged EC blackie should have dings here and there and a specific scratch here bla bla I HOPE NOT!

The best relic is the one you do yourselves by playing it - you will remember where every ding, dent, chip and rub came from.

Looks quite authentic to me... it's obviously modeled after a guitar that was taken on a tour of duty to Vietnam and napalmed.

Mug!

270 quid for an oven baked strat

I like my guitars clean and flawless...unlike my women.
