Not trolling or starting arguments. I don't understand how the relic thing works. I bought a Road-worn Jazzmaster. I bought it new because I got a good price. I didn't buy it because it was already relic'd. I didn't care about that. It looks sort of beat-up. But it's brand new. So how does an owner preserve its value? 1. Do I add my own dings and dents? 2. Or is it better to preserve it in the condition it arrived in? Are there relic connoisseurs who can distinguish between dings and dents? Sorry for a dumb question. But I really don't get it.
