I didn’t know poly could be relic’d. Weird flex but okay....
This guitar had a *fun* finish that I did not hate, before someone got *serious* about destroying half of it - all to expose that notoriously prized, gorgeous, grubby basswood ::) That said - thin urethane finishes (like modern US Standard Fenders) actually chip/ding somewhat realistically, but Squier poly just looks like last year's Easter Eggs.

Scary thing is that guy probably had a better up-bringing than Ted. We're all capable of evil I suppose.

I mean poly certainly can be made to look old and beaten up, it's just silly to think old and beaten up poly will look anything like old and beaten up nitro.

My teenage years weren't kind to my old Affinity Tele and it shows -- finish chips all around the edges, wood chips where I've dropped it a few times, little dents in the finish all over -- but obviously it's not ever going to wear down from friction like all these guys with a belt sander seem to think it will. Everything used to be shiny is always gonna be shiny save for some swirl marks.

That is utterly delightful in its tastelessness.

I do sort of like the rainbow fade neck. It would sweet on a matte black shreddy guitar or something. The rest is :k

Maybe it's just my weird thing for fender acoustics, but this made me gag.

Where is the channel between the pickups? Not sure that’s an original body and not a different plank someone cut into...
