commissioned five relic refinish Fender Stratocasters in November 2018, unfortunately only four have been completed thus far. This is number 2 (SN- 112018-02) of that vintage series. We don’t just pump them out. Our relic refinishes require hour after hour of detail love to appropriately age them so they look period authentic. Guitarwacky’s Custom Relic finishes are beyond most custom shop standards because we spare no expense in quality, time or excellence to make them right. For example we don’t just slap brand new pickguards, pickup covers, control knobs and hardware on what is thought to be an aged guitar then call it a day. Assembly lines do that. At Guitarwacky’s Custom Shop we meticulously render and age our plastics with nitrocellulose lacquers and dyes for that historical appearance.  

Our clients consider our refinished relics collectable keepsakes and this one is no different.  Surf Green is gorgeous and Fender originally used Surf Green (Duco 2461) between 1960 and 1965. Surf Green is the same color found on many 57 Chevys. As pretty as she is photographing her was a challenge. Depending upon the daylight; pics came out green while some came out blue and blue green.  

The finished product is just incredible. The fine spider web finish checking was artfully applied and is generous throughout this spectacular relic finish making this a true one-off. Vintage tuners, bridge saddles, screws and hardware were aged then sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today  for years to come. We added the mojo with pigment and texture to realistically replicate age and feel of that old guitar you always wanted but could never afford. Guitarwacky’s Custom Relics are affordable and won’t break the bank.  If you don’t own a Surf Green 57 Chevy you can own this stunning Surf Green Stratocaster. is presently previewing this guitar with many more images.
