    Just consider it a battle scar like buckle rash :) From what I have read, you can use any wall hanger but wrap the arms in cotton or felt and it should be fine.

    As far as I know, it's that spongy stuff that reacts with the varnish

    Usually they're all stabilised to a certain degree, it's probably less of an issue down here, as the heat can play a part in it. One of the guys kept his VOS R8 way too close to a woodheater, for example.

    I use Hercules wall mounts and they don't cause any issues with my Gibsons with nitro or the guitars I've finished myself. Highly recommend them. They even hold my Ormsby hype with it's headstock shape. I don't own their floor stands but I'm pretty sure they use the same foam so they'd be fine too.

    All of mine are pretty shredded. Not always easy to show up dings and fretboard pitting in phone photos unless you're trying to show off your street cred relic job.

    What neck on the 2014 Epi LP Ultra ,60's slimmer or Fifties Fatter style tonner78 ?
    And yeah Perko some do pay a bit for "customs" relic jobs..lol..just look at all those Fenders high price range,
    where relicing seem to have to pay more,though don't see too many "Gibsons type" heavy relics going around !
    Nothing wrong with Unplayed guitar,they always be show queen,just be good to see some "well played" guitars..

    Well Les Paul type guitars have a lot of different necks,slims fats in between etc..just what you prefer or like.
    the best ones is what suits you..lol some players have big hands,small hands in between etc..long fingers and so on..

    I've come around to relicing in recent years, I wouldn't do it to a super expensive guitar or something with a nice top on it tho, maybe like a MIM strat or something. Fender do seem to only offer the heavy relic guitars at the custom shop level. They have started offering some road worn MIM guitars tho. ESP do some cheapish distressed EC's and vipers too.

    The violin/unfilled nitro on my navigator strat has come off hard in the normal spots. The trouble(?) with newer fender stuff is that unless you're chipping the finish, you won't wear it off, because poly doesn't really rub away like nitro. Fretboard wear is a whole other kettle of fish too. It's hard to do it and make it look natural on maple, and unless you look closely you can't tell on rosewood. My LP is almost scalloped from 1-12 in places, but the rest of the guitar looks pretty immaculate other than checking you'd expect on a 40 year old guitar.

    If you want natural relic, you have to buy vintage these days as nitro goes out, so that's why I think fender and other smaller luthiers have seen the gap and gone for it. I don't have an issue with it myself unless it's some poser a-hole that never plays and it's obvious.

    Yeah, I've heard Nitro finishes wear better. sydneyguitarsetups actually sells Fender colour, nitro finishes in rattle cans.

    Interesting. Might get a Strat with a stuffed finish and paint one up surf green.
