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

I didn't really think you did, I just figured maybe I did come across as a bit of a jerk so I should explain myself.

I have a problem with you though Warpig


The examples if Nicks work are a bit much in my opinion, but they are incredibly well done but just not to my taste.

In my opinion, unfinished or nitro guitars age and relic, nicely depending on the extent of the cracking/fade/wear. Similar effects on poly guitars is just damage to me.

The old Fenders relic because they were nitro'd right? Hence why the modern ones just look like rubbish when people just bash them about with the aim of aging it.

You want relic? Buy a nitro finish guitar and just play it.

Poly guitars just get beat up, they dont wear or age like vintage guitars.

And I dont care what anyone says, all guitars should be nitro. Poly finishes impede tone. But I digress, thats a whole other worn out (pun intended) subject.
