Well there’s nothing worse than relic’ing your best and most expensive guitar at the drop of a hat . I never have taken my 83 Walnut Elite out of the house until last night... I’m wailing on it unplugged enjoying the weather. Rotten dog of mine starts going ape-s*** crazy at the fence because someone is walking behind there. I put my Strat on the soft and cushy lounge chair next to me. I’m out in the yard walking back from scolding him and suddenly it’s like an invisible hand pushes my dearly beloved pristine condition Strat off and onto the .....concrete.... I got to watch the horror unfold.... like in slow mo... Not pristine no more. I had to go take an hour walk to cool down. My own fault of course. I said a lot of really choice words. I’m the last guy to ever relic my instruments... so it sucks.
