Ahaha, perfect. I still remember, with great shame, a music class when I was in first grade. The teacher didn't come in at all, so after a while we started to do waht first-graders do when there are no adults around. Unfortunately, there was a piano in the room. It interested us very much. We wanted to see what's inside... About 20-30 minutes later, we had completely and irreversibly destroyed the piano. I think I might still have a couple of the hammers somewhere at home... So yeah, that is good way to relic an instrument. Maybe even too good. :lol:
Just leave it for a week or two at some random kindergarten.

The only legitimate way to do the job.
I know one way, but it takes about twenty years of touring.

good lord, that looks like some lazy ass was going to strip it completely for a refin, and got sick of the sanding and just stopped.... horrible.

Yawn. A nice SUBTLE relicing job gives an instrument character, texture, etc... the problem is that 99% of them are not subtle at all. RS guitarworks has examples of some more "authentic" relicing than the sandpaper and grinder jobs that most people seem to think are "relicing"
