I have a guitar with a burn from Joe Perry. Given that he did the burn in 1984, I wonder what a toxology report would yield...................

I seem to recall EC saying that Blackie was worn to the point of being unplayable.

Interesting that GC has matched the neck exactly, if it is indeed 'unplayable'.

I do like the EC board I installed in my Strat. Kicks up the mids to try to make it sound like an LP. Best $99 upgrade ever.

I don't know who would pay that kinda coin for a sig guitar. Baffles the mind.

Can I get one that isn't beat to shit?

Honestly, I really can't comprehend "relic'ing".
It seems really dumb to me. If I can afford a new one I'd like to let it get old on it's own.

I never much liked anything Clapton did in the Blackie era anyway.

Clapton + Gibson + Marshall = bliss

Clapton + Fender + Fender = meh

Might have had something to do with switching from pot to coke too.
heroine to liqour to coke.

and yeah, I totally agree.

Whoever stole clapton's beano burst did not know the decades of clapton dribble that they unleased upon the world

I will never understand paying $24K on a guitar. Never. You get a brand new car with that! And not just any car! :mad: :wave:

I've seen two of those jeff beck guitars this year. One in Vegas in Sept and one in Vancouver 3 days ago.
Both were exactly the same !
same scratch, same wear spot.

Isn't same-ness just another name for mass production?

I'm like you all. I'm proud of the wear spots that I've been able to put on a guitar and I don't feel any connection with wear that someone else has done.

But I am happy that they can make money for charity. I guess that's what I would hope for, that one of my guitars, one day, would be worth a bunch of money to a good charity. That would make this foolishness ok.

THere's a market for anything in the USA.

My old Tele came with the cigarette burn.

It's because some idiot burnt it somtime between 68 and 78 when I got it.
