I don't get it but whatever floats yer boat. I think it's a two stage process. First have to think that actual old, worn guitars look cool, then you have to be okay with faking it. Personally I'm okay with the faking it, trying to make something look like you want it to, I just don't think old, worn guitars look cool even if they're not faked. I think they look like old worn (out) guitars that are long overdue for a refinishing. Again, just my opinion for what that's worth. :)

If it's got the look, it's got the look! And people pay for what they like, some like the relic, some dont, hence the brand new relic's alongside the new unrelic'd models.

I was ready to shell out asking price for a certain oly white strat that sold before I could buy it. It would have been my first relic'd guitar but it had the look y'know. and 22 frets. Some vehicles have a certain body package that demands extra $$$, same shit on the inside but a (fake) hoodscoop and a nicer ferring? or spoiler and people will pay an extra 5-10k for the same vehicle because it has the look.

It's not rocket appliances!

So Fender produces a guitar with a finish some people like.
And that finish really sands some other people's ass crack.
So these other people say "do not spend YOUR money on something I don't like'.
Steadlyfastly is on a sanctioned mission, authorised by a higher power to tell us all that Fender/Gibson are evil and we should all buy budget guitars with wide nuts!

Don't forget "Big Hands". He needs a wide nut because he has big hands.

His imaginary friend Hey-Zeus says it's okay to have big hands because every is different.

I have no scientific proof, but I think the experience of the player is inversely proportional to the perceived experience of the instrument they buy.
