That looks like the early-mid 2000s version.
Funny how wear from actual use drops the price but fake wear is a price adder.
I didn't think there was anything more stupid than a relic guitar. I stand corrected.
Hahahahaaaaa:lol. That made me spit coffee !
I have a Nicky and have had several Murphy and Fender relic stuff over the years and really like them. That being said I totally get the ridiculousness of it.
I recently tried to explain the concept of the CC Nicky Aged to the keyboard player in my church worship band and he just looked at me like I was out of my mind. His quote “So you paid extra to have it beat up?” I replied yes and felt really stupid. That being said I still LOVE THEM - and will continue to buy them.
At least I give you credit for seeing "the ridiculousness of it". So what other relics have appeal? New cars? Appliances?
I think the retailers are missing an opportunity here. Quit selling "scratch and dent" for less, and start selling "relics" for more.
