    Hopefully to go out of fashion and be quietly dropped.

    Yes - relic *is* a noun, but it is not a verb.

    The verbing of a noun by a tiny segment of the population doesn't *make* it anything.

    Plenty of people on Craigslist say "for sell" - but we all (hopefully) agree that is incorrect.

    I gave you the example of "bin" earlier. Now generally accepted as a verb AND a noun...

    Language changes, gradually. Welcome to the real world.

    If your theory is correct, there would be no words at all. The first grunt from a caveman wouldn’t be a real word because no one knew what a word was. Once someone came up with the concept of a ‘word’, all new ones woukd have been declared as ‘not a real word’. Someone invents the television. Couldn’t use a new word to describe it ‘cos it wouldn’t be a real word. This post woukd read something like ‘ug, ug oh, ug, oggogg, uh, of’. A new word, brought about by the lack of an existing one to 100% meet the need, should be considered as real. The changing of an existing word for reasons of, for example, brevity, may eventually be accepted as a real word, e.g., tele for television or Tele for Telecaster.

    What really bugs me is the use of the wrong word for no reason. ‘Please can I have a chicken sandwich’ is perfectly straight forward and understandable. Why is the current trend to ask ‘please can I get a chicken sandwich’, implying the request is to serve oneself rather than be served?

    ‘I don’t give a flying .....’, Go .... yourself’, ‘total .... up’. You’re right!

    The key is in your own statement above (my highlighting) -- the guitar playing community does not equal the GENERAL English-speaking population.... sadly!

    Relicked, that's spelled "F-I-R-E-W-O-O-D" ...

    Sorry, I'm in the old fashioned, "Treat your instrument right!" school of thought, and we call "relic" damage, or undue wear and tear. Call it OCD, but I freak, about every nick and scratch, on my instruments.

    Don't do "Gig-bags", because they DON'T protect your instrument.

    Relicking, or however you want to spell it, comes from either misuse, neglect, or a poor instrument protection paradigm. To put that much wear, on one instrument, honestly, would take a hard player their entire career, with just one instrument, and that doesn't make the instrument any more desirable, IMO.

    Antique - noun. Antique - adjective. Antiquing - verb.

    The point is, I was commenting on spelling, not nomenclature. That should be obvious.
