Custom heavily aged Surf Green nitro relic inspired by a 2000 American Fender Stratocaster Standard. No dirt or shoe polish used in any of our relics. We added the mojo with pigment and texture to realistically replicate age, detailand feel of that old heavy relic guitar that you always wanted but could never afford. We spare no expense in quality or time, to get that custom shop look, feel and sound without shelling out $4-5K. Make Guitarwacky’s Custom Relics your “affordable” alternative.

Love it or send it back three day guarantee (see details and client testimonials below). This beautiful custom heavy relic Strat plays and feels like a custom guitar should, plus the Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's Pickups take it to a searing level of vintage tone when needed. The volume pot was upgraded from 250k to 500k with a treble bleed so that the tone doesn't fade at lower volume. The maple neck looks gorgeous and plays amazingly with gunky finish removed from rear neck for silky smooth speedy movement. Frets were leveled and polished then setup. Intonation with new Slinky 10’s; she’s ready to go! The pickup cavity and guard were protected with copper shielding. Vintage Tuners-Two Pivot vintage bridge saddles, screws and hardware were aged and sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today for years to come.

Guitarwacky’s proprietary finish process involves several coats of nitro lacquer, the finish is totally hand sanded, rubbed and aged. Several satin nitro clear coats are processed by hand into a softened and smooth aged luster. This Stratocaster finish is beautifully aged, soft and buttery smooth to the touch.

Understanding the significance of quality, Guitarwacky relics are flawlessly detailed by artisans whose love for guitar can only be measured by the level of detail embodied within their relic art. This boutique Relic arrives in the Fender case pictured. Google Guitarwacky today.  

Guaranteed to love your guitar or just send it back within three days for a full refund (minus all shipping expenses)

 American Fender Stratocaster Sunburst Relic Noiseless Pickups

Superb! This guitar is everything I hoped it would be and then some. A quick preface is that I have a 74' Strat I love, a 2018 Fender custom shop 57' Strat for 4k. This one feels better than the custom.I love the feel of a nice worn in guitar and sometimes when I want to get something new I like the option of having the feel of a beautiful old Strat without the insane price tag.
This guitar nailed that! The relic work is amazing! The neck and fretboard are so smooth! Absolutely Love It!
