    Funny I have never seen/heard a player w/a roadworn or reliced guitar claiming the wear was their own....I have seen/heard them playing guitars they bought because they liked their feel & look....yet in every relic thread multiple members post that same close-minded shit....

    The temptation by some people here to over-relic is annoying at one level and laughable on another!:laugh2:

    Isn't relic'ing/ageing a road worn Strat a bit redundant?

    The thing about Roadworns are, they all seem to have the same wear marks
    as the next one.

    I think some guys want to age them to be more individual.

    In all seriousness, best way I've found to accelerate aging on a guitar is to drink allot.

    helps to play it in a cramped workshop
