Relicing purposefully is blasphemy, its like cutting holes in your jeans. It looks cool, but you're just imitating coolness.

GO SKATE AND GET THEM PROPERLY!

But what do I know? It's your guitar :-)

ITT: Pig gets mad at Nicolas, and everyone joins in on one side or the other.

I'm currently relicing my blaser by using a throwing star to gently chip the paint. I'll post picks when it's done.

Upside down can of compressed air and a really hot hairdryer (or if you'd prefer the hairspray->lighter flamethrower, that works too but you gotta be careful).

The paint doesn't expand and contract as fast as the wood under it does so it'll start to crack.

I took the neck off a cheap epi strat style copy threw the body down my apt steps a few times
stomped on it in the stones smacked it off a chain link fence and so on then hit it with a lot of sanding with fine grit steel wool to take the shine off the finish threw it back together and called
it done looks pretty good too and way cheaper then buying a relic. And yes its poly finish.

yes it may be, but you didn't seem to make an art form out of it.

i disagree with the whole relicing thing, but if its your guitar, go ahead and do it.

a good relic job is art that is carefully thought of and executed. not thrown down stairs.

I don't agree with relicing but it's your guitar, you could alway wear loads of bangles on your strumming arm like slash, it makes me cringe every time I see him play scratching the crap out of a nice guitar. Also just don't look after the guitar very well, I mean, the look people are going for with the reliced look is a heavily gigged guitar that's had a long history of touring and general playing.

It was just a project to show no need to spend $100's on something you can do yourself and i didnt know trashing up a axe is a "Art Form" but i suppose it could be also used coffee grains
to age the white plastic to a antique look.

I've never played a guitar that's been beaten up, was old enough to be a relic or was reliced, and I always notice the fretboard.

My acoustic has been with me for years and the fretboard is quite worn and I don't notice the difference, but on some reliced electrics they look almost scalloped. Is that just the picture or what?

if i was ever going to have one of my guitar's relic'd i'd be sending it to nicholas.

i'd recommend everyone in this thread at least show respect for one another please.

a good relic job takes some time and effort, that's not a question. as with anything, a half ass job done in a hurry will look like just that.

nicholas, i know i've asked before and i'll ask again. please make a detailed "how to relic" thread in GB&C if you haven't.

I have no problem with Nicholas, but people that criticize and offer no better solution are one of my buttons. All I ever wanted was for him to offer up a better method if he claims that there is one. I think that's a standard that everyone should be held to.

1 - same here.

2 - huge plus one right here.

3 - also same here, that's why i asked him to do a "how to" thread.


look i know i can come across as a bigger a-hole than anyone else on this site on the right day, i get that. i know nick from some other forums and he has a fair share of haters out there. he brought that on himself by his own actions. but at the end of the day his work on relic'ing guitars is flat out some of the best i've seen. (others will disagree and that's fine, things can get relic'd too far to the point of ruin in many people's opinion) we all have our good and bad, it makes us human.

if he would post a "how to" thread, and maybe he already has, it would be a benefit to UG as a whole. i know i'd learn something from it. but some people, and i'm not saying nick is this way, don't want to share how they do what they do because it let's the cat out of the bag and suddenly "everyone is a pro" at it. part of me certainly respects that as well.

warpig i have no problem with you, you know that.

Thanks. I did not film it, i really never have a video camera at hand when ever i get the drive and inspiration to do this and i know it will help me in the future if i did so, but i devote all my concentration on doing the aging and not thinking about when ever the camera will stop filming or if its low on charge etc.

I actually do not recommend doing agin on poly finishes, its just not right.

Poly is like glass, any one that gets a ding in a poly finish knows how bad it looks, in lacquer or varnish finishes a ding is not as invasive and can actually be repaired, not with Poly, that is the very reason i refinish my PRS, it had a lot of dings and they looked terrible with the poly finish they use.

I can only offer whats in my videos and all the questions and answers i have given for all this years in my aging threads over at mylespaul forum, there is a ton of info and tips that my help and inspire some people to do there own relic jobs.

cheers.

Nico.
