    belt sander+steel wool+ tack cloth= "professional tools"

    this looks like the kid was trying to strip it down completely to get all that crap off and his arm got tired 15 min into it and he said..eh, this looks kinda cool to me... and now he claims it was intentional relicing

    I think that kid ought to consider a paper route instead. :D
  7. maybe im a little sheltered but why would someone pay someone else to make their guitar look old ?? like who in their right mind drops 1500 on a usa jazz bass looks at it and says .. ya know what would make this better ... sandpaper ....

    people are so impatient .... just play your guitar for 20 years every day and it wont look like a relic .,. and will be one ....

    Not to put water on a fire that I started myself :rolleyes:, but let's just agree that there are those who like the looks of a relic'd bass as much as I like a Midnight Wine/black pickguard. Yes, it's different, I know, but the "is relic-ing stupid" argument has pretty well been covered here.

    My reason for posting is that I find humor in the fact that this "pro" expects that someone will trust him (or her) to do the job with their bass for a measly $10. Maybe (s)he makes money doing this, and if so, that's great. But if relic was my thing, I'd either do it myself ("pro tools" /over 20 years) or find someone who valued their work more than a sawbuck...:rollno:
