yea he literally set his on fire, though...

i chose the less dangerous route (i suppose that's debatable since i almost suffocated in my not so well ventilated garage) and used a heat gun.

Looks pretty bad ass. So what exactly did you do? And you should probably finish it so it doesn't wear/chip away.

so you decided to take the time to come in here... decide you don't like it and then waste more time typing your worthless opinion...?

there's a smart cookie...

He can come in here and say it´s crap...

I think it looks pretty cool only because the finish is a perfect colour for it.

He was giving you feedback on your job. If you don't want people coming in and posting, good or bad, then don't make threads. Personally I'm not a huge fan of the burning myself, but as long as you like it, who cares?

Don't be a troll!

And I think it doesn't look that bad, a little rough, but unique!


yea rough was kind of the point... supposed to look "aged".

Yea, but I think that he could have least said why, just it seemed kinda Dicktacular© to put it that way. I am not saying that you shouldn't voice your opinion, just don't waste everyone's time with posts like "It looks like crap"

You asked for opinions...Don't expect that all opinions will be positive.
OK, technically you didn't ASK for opinions, but that's pretty much the only reason to post pics, is to get other people's opinions...

In the end, the only opinion that matters is yours.
If you like it, more power to ya!

this is exactly what i'm saying... there's a difference between constructive criticism and/or feedback and being a straight up douchebag. i think we're all old enough to recognize this difference...

I dig it. Jimi would be happy. But yeah, I like how it looks, granted I wouldn't have the balls to burn one of mine.

Watch it with the double and triple posts, you might piss off some of the people around here.

Hey that is pretty cool... Really cool actually. I like it because it just looks unique. I'm going to have to do that to one of my old crappy guitars with a shiny finish. I still prefer matte finish but that is a cool idea for a gloss finish.

Are posts like "It looks like crap" any better or worse than posts like "It looks awesome!"? The latter is just as eloquent and well thought out as the former. Also, since when does a person have to explain why he finds something unattractive? If it looks bad to someone, it looks bad, no explanation necessary. Unless you were hoping for something like "It looks like crap because I don't like burned guitars." That's a little obvious.

On a more related note, I'm not a fan of the relic look. Whether by fire, sanding, or chipping from contact with a solid object, I do not like it at all. I'll take a sparkly new finish over a road worn look any day.
