- Reaction score
I really dig the gibson VOS thing, basically ageing it lightly by buffing down the finish a little and tarnishing the hardware, making it look like a mint condition but still 60 year old instrument. I dig this on vintage reissues to make the guitar not feel shiny and brand new and like you are playing a real vintage instrument.
I dont personally see the point in most new (non vintage spec like murphy lab) aged guitars, especially like the fender road worn series which is very fake and not what real wear would look like
I plan on building a LP junior in the near future and want to relic that, but do it in a more legitimate way. Basically recreate all the standard ways i ding up my guitars but do 40 years worth in a couple days/ weeks ad just generally not care/ try to ding it on things
A couple of days of those funny sanding gloves should do the trick....
