SAYBIA have bought 2 of their electric guitars by Henning Hansen, a guitar maker who specializes in making new unique guitars who looks like they have been used for 15 years. The Danish relic-style is made through hard work, and it takes up to 7 months to make just one example. Some of the ways to make a brand new guitar look almost “antique” is to:
- Store the wood in up to 10 years before use
- Letting kinds play with the guitar necks
- Put the metal in hydrochloric acid
- Scratch the body with dirt and stones
But the most important ingredient, to make these unique masterpieces, is Hennings own artistic finish, such as cigarette burns and even blood touches, to make sure that the guitars looks like they have been with the bands/artist on tour for a long time.
