my guitars are battered

Recommended Posts

All of my customs have electronics in them from Deaf Eddie (http://www.deaf-eddie.net/index.html) so that I can use my pickups as either single-coils or humbuckers.  Best of both worlds!

Tone options for my lastest custom.

Here's what my second custom had (the only one I had to sell - it went to forum member Space Cowboy who, unfortunately, passed away about a year ago - no idea where the guitar is now...).   Anyway, WAY more tone options on this one!

Just some ideas. 🙂

HSS was my favorite setup on electric because of the tones you could get out of it. The only other thing I ever wanted was a basic Fender Telecaster....oh and maybe a nicer Martin acoustic...and.........

I think we'd all agree that dings and knocks are to be avoided if possible, but those earned 'honestly' are fine (nay inevitable for the gigging musician).

What I simply just don't understand is why anyone would part with their hard-earned cash for a so-called 'relic', or artificially 'road-aged' guitar.

To me that'd be like purchasing a shiny new guitar, getting it home and taking a sander to it.

Am I missing the point?

I don’t get people that purposely relic their guitars.  I agree, most are not realistic looking and look more like someone took a belt sander to the poor thing.  Kind of like taking a sledge hammer to a brand new car.  

I don’t have an issue at all with natural dings and wear.

Some people do the same thing to perfectly good, new jeans too!  Dumb.

Battered, maybe...  But are any of them deep-fried? 😁
