Heavily Reliced basses

Interesting finishes created by abrasion are fine, but 'old guitar appearence' relicing is faking age in the attempt to fake mojo. Fakeness is bad and says something about the owner.

However there's clearly no shortage of guitarists and bassists with bad taste, or immature ones, so what is wanted is provided.

There’s not much point berating someone for having different taste. 

We’re all ‘right’ because that’s what we like, but it doesn’t make anyone else’s choices ‘wrong’.

It comes up every few weeks and just like the p bass debate, I don’t think anyone is going to change their mind

'Carefully' relicing is even more ridiculous, as the intent is the appearence of lack of care, might a well relic it yourself and save paying the extra labour costs.

You are clearly more mature, and with better taste, than almost anyone I can think of. You post Has been an epiphany for me and will, I'm certain, convince anyone tempted by such devil's hardware of the error of their ways.
