I know, I know…

I ruined it with relic road wear.




I’m OK with that. 🙂

Seriously though, good relic work is a labor of love. Finish checking, arm wear, and edge chipping are the easy parts. Most people don’t pay attention to the details like the fact that real vintage guitars have a soft sheen to them that can only come from fully buffing the finish out, then knocking it back a before checking the finish.

Dragging it behind your car just won’t cut it.
