CME Custom Relicing

At Chicago Music Exchange, we LOVE vintage gear. Nothing feels quite like a guitar that has been played for decades – it's a lot like a perfectly worn-in baseball glove. That's why we're thrilled to introduce to you: CME Custom Relic'ing! Now you can take your brand new guitar and give it that special vintage feel.

Yes, you read right. Bring your untouched gear to our Custom Relic'ing Experts, and we'll use our patented relic'ing process to set you on the path to perfect tone. We can't give away all of our secrets, but we can give you a quick behind-the-scenes video tour:

As you can see, there are a lot of ways to make a brand new guitar feel vintage. It's not just the scratches or the dents, the cracked finish, or the worn neck. It's a lifetime of many forms of abuse – from bumpy road trips and faulty stands to smoky bar gigs, drunken bandmates and angry exes. So bring your guitar in to Chicago Music Exchange today...we'll take good care of it.

NOTE: No useable instruments were harmed in the making of this video. All of the guitars featured were already beyond repair. PLEASE do not try relic'ing your instruments at home. Remember, we're the professionals.
