    Some people shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a guitar...

    I'm always curious to the "story" behind some of the poorer relic jobs. Like, I thought I was clumsy with the pickup selector while playing, but it looks like this frickin' dude always missed.

    When I see relics THIS bad, I generally imagine that this was the kid that didn't just color outside of the lines, but instead went full bore right off the paper and onto the desk. RE the switch, I don't think that Edward Scissorhands could have fucked up that veneer as bad as this guy.

    Honestly, I think a lot of relics start with someone making a mistake in refinishing, or gouging the guitar when trying to do a mod, etc, and then figures they’ll turn it into a relic. Which is a terrible reason to do one, because clearly situations like these haven’t been planned well.

    ^Yeah, they just need to let the mistake be. After all, the lesson from relics is that mojo = booboo + time.

    The vast majority (if not all of them) are just trying way too hard to achieve that worn out aesthetic, only to fail with flying colors in a variety of amateurish and poorly thought out ways.

    So I played one of these today in the Guitar Center "Platinum Room". It doesn't look as stupid in person..but it still looks like shit. Extremely lightweight which kinda irked me. Overall, nothing special and DEFINITELY not worth the price tag. Surprise surprise.

    I feel like the older I get, the less I like Kerry King.

    Ugh. His playing, leads especially, is just a flat out no. Slayer would be a little more tolerable if their solos weren't mindless noise.

    He's a terrible song writer, his solos are horrendous, what's there to like?

    Buckethead tele?!

    The KKV... which end is which?

    The Wes Borland hybrid... who here is triggered that it's only an inch longer than a strat scale length, yet is considered a guitar/bass hybrid?

    You know, it's funny you mention that, cause I thought King wrote more stuff for Slayer. Turns out, mostly Hanneman on music and lyrics.

    But I have to give him a LITTLE bit of credit for one of Slayer's best lyrical hooks in Disciple. Back when they still played, if you were in the audience, you wouldn't NOT yell out "God hates us all!" during Disciple. And while that ain't much, it's still pretty good. But Repentless I definitely felt like Kerry was picking up a bit too much slack, though the album has its moments, like Implode.

    And while his leads are nothing to write home about (especially compared to Jeff who had a bit more thought to his crazy solos), his rhythm playing I'd argue IS.
