    Some years ago I knew a guy who designed clothing, particularly wedding dresses. If he thought that someone looked a mess (and he often did think that), he would say:

    "Well, that's a look......"

    That comment seems to suit perfectly the leopard spotted guitar we're discussing here.

    I'm not really a fan of relicing, I dont like ny scratches on mine, but this really does have great character. Its very original. I'd play it.

    hope its more to your liking next time around!

    Why don't you guys put a "k" in the word? It's clearly supposed to be how the word "relicked" is spelled. Just a "c" means it should be pronounced soft, like an "s". Adding the "k" makes the consonant hard - which is exactly how we all pronounce the word.

    Relicing? It sounds like someone who had lice - then they were removed or killed, then get got his lice back again. :confused:

    "Congratulations - you have been reliced - your lice are all back again & fit & healthy"

    WTF? :confused:

    I guess either is correct technically, the dictionary says relick is an Archaic form of relic.
    Let's look at them in a sentence.
    I reliced my guitar this morning.
    I relicked my guitar this morning.
    Just me looking at it I would say the first sentence looks better. In the second sentence one could mistaken someone for taking a second lick on their guitar.

    ^^^I agree. But, I too at first glance, ages...simply ages ago, was confused. To avoid any possible future problems...I suggest, given the thrust of this forum, we put the burden on those who would actually repopulate their lice . From this moment on...we demand lice reinfestors use a hyphen...re-lice/ing/ed


    If there is going to be any re-licking going on here...I don't want it to be with any of you guys...

    you know what, if all humans had cat tongues then re licking would make sense. just lick them until the paint wears away with your nubby bumpy little cat tongue

    Then there's the whole hair ball thing though...flammable little balls of fur and nitro.

    Hmmm, I guess we're not going to agree on this one. I think the second sentence looks "better" & makes more sense.

    And I would rather that people think that I'm licking my guitar rather than giving it lice!

    I know exactly what you mean. Perhaps we could adopt a compromise solution and go for 'vandalised' as a universally adopted term. Just imagine how many people would be standing over their guitars with the belt sander on full and then pause to consider how that ebay auction is going to read...

    I put an apostrophe between relic and ed. I have a black EC body that I haven't found a neck for, but what the heck, I'm gonna tow it behind my Royal Enfield Continental for a couple of blocks, sand it, spray a coat of clear nitro and see if I can sell it for enough to buy a Squier.

    Well I guess this practice isn't so uncommon.
