I dropped a few searches in to see if a thread on this already existed. I couldn't find one, so here it is. Note... this is not a relic vs. not relic debate. In looking into custom builds I have noticed there are a lot of builders (mainly those that build Strat/Tele type guitars) that do not offer guitars without aging. What is the rationale behind this? Because to me, that means I'm not buying the guitar for its musical qualities if the builder isn't willing to show me one closet clean. Thoughts?
