Relic Guitars: Learning to Love It

Relic Guitars: Learning to Love It

I never thought I'd get into relicing guitars. I actually fell into doing it because I sell used guitars. Prior to that I held to the belief of many guitarists: "Relicing is just as bad as buying pre-ripped Levi's!" 

Then one day I realized sometimes you don't start with a "perfectly good guitar" and relic it. Sometimes you get a guitar that looks like crap. At that point you have three choices: throw it in the nearest dumpster and toss in a match; sell it for next to nothing; or beat it up even more--aka relic it.

Seen a Hamer Phantom A5?

Seen a Hamer Phantom A5?

Based on the original 1981 Hamer Prototype, the Phantom A5 came out a couple years later and you don't see too many floating around today. They've got a triple-bucker pickup in the bridge. Andy Summers of all people used this shredder styled axe, as did Glenn Tipton of Judas Priest. Originally they had a paddle shaped, three on a side headstock, then later went to a pointed six on a side design. Looks like this:

These can fetch some bucks on the used market now. Seeing prices from $2k to $2500 on Reverb right now.
