i have a new custom model Synyster coming in a few weeks, and i really wanna try to keep it as MINT as possible, and its gonna be tough with the gold hardware fading over time. SOOOO my current black Synyster standard is primarily my gigging ax, and it already has a ding in it, and the pickup rings are cracking, and it has a scratch. so i got the brilliant idea, to LIGHTLY relic it, not to look like i did it on purpose, but enough to give it a cool, one of a kind look. The body is mahogany so its dark and should mesh well with the black.

what do you guys think? relic it or no?

I don't see on earth why you'd wanna beat a perfectly good guitar up with the sole intention of making it look like ****.

Whatever floats your boat though, buddy.

Relic it so hard it snaps in two >_>

But seriously, do a refinish if you want to change the looks, personally I think the "Synyster" guitars would be fine if not for that eye crushing finish.

i dislike unnaturally reliced guitars. theres no story besides "i thought it would look cool" to got with it. let nature take its course. then its well that ding is from the show where i was so drunk i... or well the finish is all f-ed up there from playing 6 hours a day. the neck has nasty marks on it from me having sweaty dirty hands.... the scratches on the back are from me jumping around with a metal belt buckle etc. it gives it character, instead of lies.

Don't relic it but here's a great mod you could do instead: new ebony fret board with side dots and no inlays (or offset dots). I think those would be great guitars if it wasn't for the inlays (and I thought the same thing when i was a huge Avenged Sevenfold fan), and it would be a one-of-a-kind kind of thing

Do not relic it =S if you want a reliced guitar buy one and that white one is fugly, looks better in the video.

UG Mods really have no sense of humour.....
