Does this look like a £2k relic?


Recommended Posts

That's awful. Like the worst Squier Affinity vs. idiot with belt sander botch job you've ever seen.

 

Beggars belief a that a proper luthier/custom shop would turn out such a mess, even more so that anyone would part with cash for it. Hideous.

All that 'relic' on the front and no buckle rash? Pull the other one.

My thoughts exactly.

 

and the amount of ‘relic’ just makes it look like a very badly treated instrument - eg all the damage around the headstock - that’s not ‘wear’.

Although for someone who generally isn’t keen on relics it’s taught me a lesson, in that there is an art to making a decent/authentic looking one.

 

Yeah, it's 30-40 years of hard, genuine, use...

Looks like a variation on the 'World Tour' finish.


Do people really part with their hard earned moolah for that?  I’m a fan of a natural relic, anyone that’s seen my Oly White ‘69 Jazz Bass will know how much I love it - but this just seems way over the top and completely unnatural?

 

 Not for me I’m afraid.
