    I personally have never understood the idea of "relicing". Trashing a beautiful guitar! Of course owning a guitar that belonged to a noted guitarist that has some "honest" wear would be cool!

    Given that it's an Epiphone SG now turned into a relic it seems pretty high priced at 500.

    But Gibson and Fender do some custom work where they age the guitars so I guess there must be a certain market segment out there that likes them?

    That isn't "reliced". That thing was set on fire by some moron.

    I'm sorry for my ignorance, but does "Relicted " mean "F*cked up by an idiot" in English?

    This is a heavy crime against a guitar and effort of builders!

    Okay, $500 is insane, but offer up $150, you get a case worth at least $50 and a guitar to mod to your delight. It can now be stripped to bare wood and refinished any color you like, nitro if that grooves your trip. It's not a bad deal @ the right price.

    my sense of scam seems to scream:

    RUN, DON'T WALK AWAY FROM DEALS
    INVOLVING GUITARS OWNED BY DRAGONS.

    I think that instrument was in a house fire.
    Difficult to strip the poly from an Epi, isn't it?
    I'd pass, there are so many great
    guitars for sale that are no more and
    no less than they seem.

    ... Shot down in flames ... :rofl:


    Maybe if he sets on fire the whole guitar, it could be better: you won't see the original color and what it could be happened to it. It might seem an intentional finish.... (poor guitar).
    P.S.: LOWER PRICE!
