I’ve never seen wear like this. Is this natural? What’s going on here?
That's weird, man. Never seen anything like it. Hope somebody knows what's up
Very odd. It almost seems like they stained the wear area.
Never seen that. Acid or alkaline sweat?
My guess is someone sanded it (I don’t get it, but it’s a “thing”) and then they, or someone else oiled it causing it to darken.
Relicing gone wrong and repair going worse.
Doesn’t look that different to. A Nash finish...
That looks like a weird relicking...
Looks like someone didn't wash their hands after a particularly bad accident involving taco bell.
Is that just stained or has some of it peeled off? What is this guitar?
Obviously sanded in a bad relic attempt.
Are there any photos of the front to see if it is a relic job or not?
A bad attempt at a relic or an attempt at a bad relic?
I think the former. Why would anyone purposefully try for the latter?
Good question. Though it seems that some do try....
Yup. It’s a 1978
Is it? With a truss rod access hole at the headstock?
It sure doesn’t appear to be relicing since there is none on the rest of the guitar, or even on the front of the neck.
People do the strangest things. I really don’t get the reasoning behind sanding a guitar neck to supposedly make it play faster.
Maybe some people have sweaty palms as well as body chemistry that makes their hands stick to finishes? That seems to be how fans of the procedure describe their experiences.
Fortunately, I have never had that problem. I’ve never experienced a “sticky” neck before.
So to follow your logic through to it's conclusion, you're speculating that some people sweat more than some other people?
That seems like a fairly safe assumption to me!
