Most unconvincing "roadworn" ever?

Recommended Posts

After seeing photos of Rubis' remarkable sonic blue Precision, that looks all the more half-arsed!

Shouldn't it be roadkill?

Definitely more accurate!

They probably thought they were enhancing the grain...

I do sort of like the roadworn look but only if its genuine, or at least if its done properly like the limelights which are pretty convincing

They don't half pick some weird places to wear. How on earth would a bass wear under the strings behind the pickups (sunburst above) or around the bridge (green)..? Surely, if you're gonna do it, look at pictures of actual rw basses and replicate that.

A lot of the early Limelights went a bit OTT with the relic idea, but the newer ones are a lot more realistic.

Presumably that simulates the previous owner having incurable priapism?
