Hi there I have a custom classic tele that I absolutely love to bits. You may be thinking "OH GOD NO DON'T LET HIM RELIC IT!!!" but let me explain... Last year someone else picked up my guitar, played it without my knowledge, and put it back in it's case without doing the latches (always check those latches...). Now because I always do up my guitar case, I just picked it up by the handle, and watched my baby literally fall down a set of stairs. Luckily the damage was not severe, and only some finish chipped off the body. This happened about 6 months ago and the damage has annoyed me ever since. I don't want to get it refinished because the cost to do the entire body (it is a see through blonde so can't touch up coat it), is far more than any value I have lost on the guitar. What I would like to do, is lightly sand back this area so that the ugly damage looks like natural arm rub. The reason I thought of this is that the damage is literally in the perfect place for that style of relic. Now I am not super into the relic look, and am all for natural wear and tear, but this does not look natural and just looks ugly and annoys me. Can anyone out there give some insight on how I would relic this back to a natural light arm rub look? Photos of the current damage attached. Thanks!!!
