Gibson's Custom Shop, now with relicing! If you were to buy a Custom Shop Gibson (even hypothetically) would you want it reliced?

To me relics are just another finish. I've seen some amazing relics and I've seen terrible relics.
My answer to the poll is neither of the options as my buying decision would depend on the individual guitar.
That said, relicing is a finish option that I would be very unlikely to pay extra for.

“I always stack my work up against real deal vintage Gibson guitars, and the effect that we are now able to achieve, well, there’s just nothing else out there like it. This is a game changer. This is the future of aging guitars.”

Please explain Mr Murphy

I take it back about the cat. Might have a time machine, though.

A paltry $12.3k on L&M's website for the Heavy Aged '59 LP. Cheapest is $5099 for a TV Jnr single cut.

There's bad relics and there's relics where no one would know it wasn't vintage.

The good news is, you dont have to buy any of them.

I hate sticky necks & don’t mind a light relic on a Fender but can’t stand the razor blading Gibson seems to be fond of doing. Yes, I am aware of the inconsistency of my stance.
