Bad examples of guitar ageing

I know how to age a guitar, you just rub wire wool all over it until all the shine in every place has gone.
everything has the wirewool treatment, pickups, tuners, oh and a couple of chips on the body too.

Japs might know how to build a guitar but ageing is best left to the Pro's.

I particularly like the scratches on the, erm, scratchplate. Who would consistently hit their strings in such a weird direction? Elsewhere, it's just a whizz-whizz from the circular pad. And someone doesn't wash their hands before tuning up - eewww. Not very impressive.

I never saw the point in fake guitar "ageing". First time I saw a Fender Custom Shop relic guitar I laughed until my sides hurt. Especially when I saw the price.

Just what is the point?

I bought one :cry: a custom classic early relic. the Relic part looked very nice, and played very nice at room volume, but, it was a very different guitar playing at volume, horrible.
I sold it a year later for what i bought it for.
I quite like the idea of a Relic, one thing, i never used to worry about leaving it laying around.
Oh it was a 62' Strat, or was it a 58'? nice sunburst though.
