IMO, It depends on the guitar.

Strats and tele's happen to look great (IMHO) with a little wear and tear on them...most of the brand spankin' new ones just don't seem right to me. I think a moderately light relic job looks nice.

More modern looking guitars, however (i.e. Jem, Prestiges' etc.) don't look good with it to me. They should be kept in good condition (but don't just leave it in its case all its life )

If an MIJ, basswood ibanez went through the same ordeal as those old beaten up strats then it would be in several peices. you knock a strat, youll chipp some paint off, you knock a basswood iby, youll take a chunk of wood out.

Re: Another one in the making I know you guys hate these

Cool, it's looking good. I've just done a couple of strat relic projects myself recently (I know what you mean about stress relieving ) to put on the bay for more gear. If I actualy ever went out and bought a brand new strst I would definatly do a relic job on it as strats don't look rock and roll until they have some scars imho.

I gave this a heavy Gallagher job



..and a light relic on this one.



It's a lot of fun to do and it's probably the cheapest mod on the planet.

Sweet - love the cigarette burns (is that your signature mark now? )

What's with the Custom Shop decal on the back?
