Having already said that I'm not a fan of intentionally 'relicing' anything, I will admit that the Champ is done tastefully (!). It looks like it's been in somebody's garage for 20 years.

Its tastefully done in that example but relicing an instrument is like buying jeans with already worn and ripped knees. You may FEEL like you're a badass but we all know you aren't

How much value in % do they lose once they are badly mutilated?
edit: sorry I mean reliced.
None - all but the lightest relics can always be later sold as "mint"... Regardless of whether they're damaged at the factory, or through actual use. It's a wonderful situation for anyone selling these things (both companies, and players).

I'm going to start a relic'ed consumables company, selling "pre-aged" guitar strings, picks, tubes, drum sticks & heads... with that vintage mojo. Of course, all production will be kept in-house on an extremely small-scale, limited basis. Quality over quantity, you know.
