Vintage movie poster pickguards would be cool, too.

I like that and it seems like an easy upgrade.

With a tittle like this it sounds like it qualifies for AKC, Jockey Club or The Roll of Peerage.

I think it looks tacky. Not a pick guard buff, though. I like the small ones like on a les Paul or none like a PRS.

FWIW...

I'm presently watching 'Billy Connolly's Great American Trail' on TV.

The second episode of three was on a couple of days ago in which he visited the Martin Guitar factory in Nazareth PA.

Might be of interest to the guitar aficionados among you if it's shown in the US.

Not the episode in question, but it should give you a flavour of the series...

People be intentionally distressing guitars, I thought I saw that here?

Yes but the strap and wear on the headstock looks like mileage. If it's faked they did a good job.

it's faked. look at the finger board. the frets stand out like a sore thumb. The inlay dots are crystal clean white, they'd be yellowed....Even if it had been re-fretted, you'd see some scalloping on the fingerboard if it was actually as well used as it tries to appear. I think it's gay. They do all kinds of stupid shit to make guitars look well played. Including corroding screw heads and tarnishing hardware. I wonder if they also rip holes in the knees of their blue jeans.

Why, it can't make the guitar more valuable, does it give the player creds?

Pick three and it's money for nothing and sex or free.*

* I know it was "chicks for free" but that would be sexist and exclusionary by precluding the possibility of female guitar players on MTV.

I don't think it adds value... But then value is determined by how much any buyer is willing to pay. I guess the idea is to give the false impression that you've been playing so many shows or hours that you've worn out your guitar. I think it's dishonest. Does a tattoo make you tougher? Or just look tough?
