Don't forget to checkout our other affordable relics in our Reverb Store. Listed is a awesome American Fender Stratocaster HSS custom heavy relic nitro silver sparkle over seafoam green; inspired by a 2017 American Fender Strat with a 70's style headstock. Totally custom aged nitro lacquer sparkle finish with tons of finish checking makes this an absolute one-off custom.  Finish checking visually pops at certain angles.

No dirt, polyurethane or shoe polish used in any of our relics. We added mojo with .008 metal flake, pigment and texture to realistically replicate age and feel of that old heavy relic guitar you always wanted but couldn't afford. Adler body weighing in at a little over 7.15 lbs we spared no expense in quality or time to get that custom shop look, feel and sound without shelling out $4-7K. Make Guitarwacky’s Custom Relics your “affordable” alternative.

This beautiful custom heavy relic plays and feels like a custom guitar should, with Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Pickups in the SS positions; a Fender Atomic Humbucker in the neck position which take it to a searing level of vintage tone when needed. Additionally installed is a 500k volume pot upgrade with treble bleed circuitry for the best tonal range possible. Rosewood fretboard, synthetic bone nut-25.5" scale length-9.5 radius and "C" shaped neck. Jumbo frets were dressed and polished then setup and intonated with new Slinky 09’s; she’s ready to go! Six point vintage tuners, bridge saddles, screws and hardware were aged and sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today for years to come.

Yes we spray nitro metal flake. Guitarwacky’s proprietary finish process involves several coats of HVLP nitro lacquer, the finish is totally hand sanded, rubbed and aged. This Stratocaster finish is beautifully aged, soft and 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 heavy relic arrives in the brand new generic tweed case pictured.

 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!

Probably one of the best guitar purchases i've ever made. Matches the quality, sound, appearance, and play-ability of a custom shop relic at 1/3 the cost. Couldn't be happier.
