Custom Relic finishes are beyond most custom shop standards because no expense in quality, time or excellence is spared to make them right. We don’t just pump them out.  Relic refinishes require hour after hour of detail love to appropriately age them so they look period authentic. 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. Assembly lines do that. At Guitarwacky’s Custom Shop plastics are meticulously rendered and aged with nitrocellulose lacquers and dyes for that historical appearance.  

This Fiesta Red over Coral Strat is presently being profiled on our homepage with many more pics. Clients consider our relics collectable keepsakes and this one is no different.   Fiesta Red over Coral Custom Fender Stratocaster Relic refinished by Custom Shop. This is number 2 (SN- 92018-0102) of that vintage series. This spectacular relic Stratocaster reveals itself to be a prized bar worn find with years of honest playwear from gigging and touring.

 This relic started as a 2004 MIM Fender Strat Standard with a Rosewood fretboard, American Fender Custom Shop Texas Specials pickups, 5-way switch, and grease bucket tone circuitry and finally a 500k volume pot with a treble bleed circuit added complementing and supercharging the Texas Special pups. This Strat looks awesome and sounds like true custom guitar. It growls, pops, and clicks like a Stratocaster should then soars with searing lead progressions or rhythm and chord chomps.

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.  Mojo added 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. This Relic arrives in a Roadrunner Poly Hard Case.
