Have any of guys ever made your own heavy relic guitar?
My guitar teacher said to just unscrew the body, put it in a bag and drag it behind a car for about 10 minuites and to dispose of smokes on it and never clean it, maybe even spill some coffee onto the neck or headstock.
Now that's cool and all but what about lighting it on fire? Even just a quick burn that will taint the paintjob without getting a chance to ruin anything.


How dangerous is it to give your guitar the Hendrix?

Cigarette marks are brutal (;

just kidding.


I like reliced guitars. But not the heavy relicing.

Just a nice vintage thingy. It should look like you've played the shit outta the guitar for like 20 years.

Relicing on purpose is retarded IMO

you tred a fine line between 'vintage' and broken guitar...

Just play it for 30 years and the job will be done properly.

The key rule to relicing is: Make it realistic.
If it's not realistic there's no point in doing.
Do what you want, but make sure it looks real, otherwise you just have a mess.

Yeah, keep it subtle. If you try too hard to make it look old, it'll just look awful.

Drop it a couple of times, gouge it with the jack, and let a homeless man sleep with it for a day.

Perfect relic job, every time.
