    Check out this relic job. It came from years of banging this body around and generally playing the sh** out of it. The neck is only a couple of years old, the original neck was plumb wore out.

    I don't consider a guitar with a few honestly acquired bumps, scrapes and scratches to be a relic, I prefer to call them much loved and well played guitars. Relics require deliberate acts of vandalism.

    Looks like it has one of those Japanese string clamps behind the nut plus string trees? Was that a thing?

    Also looks like it's down to an even $200 now.

    Its a "look" not a relic look but a look. There is just something about grinding on a nice shiny poly finish thats so addicting you just cant stop. Ask me how I know :)

    When it comes to relicing I like my guitar to be a little crispy & well-done.:)
