Q: Should I relic this Strat to sell?
If it was me, I wouldn't have licked it at all, let alone doing it again.
Go ahead and wreck your guitar. Then after you realise your mistake and it is worth next to nothing you will see that vandalising guitars is a bad idea.
I despise relicing...relic it the right way, by playing it!
No! Leave it as is. Fauxrelicsareforposers
Price it $100. too high. If they say something about the chips knock off $100.
Nothing you can or will do will improve the value short of a complete refinish, and the selling price difference won't pay for the refinish.
Leave it alone and let the future owner decide what he wants.
If done properly.
A person asking the OP's question lacks the basic skills to do the job properly.
I would leave it alone!
Is that the original pickguard? I know that model in "Montego Black" came with a greenish gold soft plastic guard, but did they also put it on the ones in "three color Sunburst"?
No, it's not pretty dinged up, it has a couple small dings up it. Leave it be.
Leave it as is.
I wouldn't touch a relic (however you spell it) with a borrowed ten foot pole.
I looks fine as is.
Just leave it alone. Relic it by playing it as much as you can!
Leave it, it’s a genuine, honest guitar as it is.whoever buys it will repair it if they see fit. I doubt anyone would buy it to beat it up some more.
Now that’s troll response!?
Number of times ive seen self-relicing work out well:
Leave it and send it to me. Lol. But, I don’t mind a guitar with dings, especially if I didn’t put them on and experience that pain. I’ve got an Active JBass with some dings like that, and they don’t bother me even a little. Might not get full price, but I’d rather feel like I knew what I was getting than to find out there was a repair done when I get it or when the repair fails later on. Or you could take it to a luthier and have him strip it and throw a nice nitro on it...
See this '58'. In 1969 it looked like yours. I sent it out to CBS-Fender to have it refinished. They replaced the body instead. I didn't find out until 25 years later when I took it, for appraisal, to the late, great 'Mandolin Brothers' on Staten Island that the body had been switched out. Leave it alone. Sell it as is.
it has to be played,- would make that question superfluous ;-)
