Relic Deluxe: Do It Yourself Relicing

relic-deluxe

Have you ever thought, “I could do that myself!  Why pay for it?”  Many of us think that about simple projects, but few people have probably ever thought that they could relic their own guitar.  relic-deluxeWell, it may not be the simplest, easiest project in the world, but there is a website out there that can walk you through the process step by step: Relic Deluxe.  The owner of Relic Deluxe began by relicing some of his own guitars, and then he did several for his friends.  He actually considered doing relicing and custom guitar building as a side job, but he changed his mind later.  However, he decided he should share his techniques and processes with everyone else who was interested in having a relic guitar but didn’t want to pay for it.

The website Relic Deluxe includes just about everything you’d ever need to know about relicing a guitar.  The tools and materials section gives you a list of everything you’ll need to purchase to get started.  The site even tells you where to find most of these items, especially the more obscure ones like hydrochloric acid (it’s used in swimming pool upkeep).  Once you’ve got all of your supplies together, you’ll find pages that walk you through relicing the body, neck, metal hardware, and plastic parts.  The site also features a gallery of the many relic guitars created by the man behind Relic Deluxe.

If you love do it yourself projects and want a relic guitar, check out Relic Deluxe.  Just remember to read the disclaimer—the site is not responsible for any damages!
