About This Listing

Just completed: 7lb 12oz American Fender Stratocaster Custom Relic Blue Sparkle. This blue color pops in light and appears from Lake Placid Blue to Turquoise. This stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finish was professionally and artfully aged by hand. This is not an assembly line produced finish. This custom relic began life as a 2012 American Fender hand Stained American Special and is all original including American Standard Pickups which were standard on this particular model. Vintage tuners replaced standard tuners.  Guitarwacky's proprietary finish uses top quality paints, pearls, flake and was developed over time. 

Next, the body received the ultimate Guitarwacky proprietary pigment age treatment including finish checking. Don't forget to checkout our other affordable relics, then follow us to be notified when guitars are listed;Google us! Also check our recent relic sales feedback w/links included below.

Guitarwacky aged pick guard completes this incredible guitar. Frets dressed and polished and the guitar will arrive freshly setup and ready to play. This beauty is powered by original Fender single coil pickups. Aged vintage tuners and slinky 09’s; she’s ready to go! Saddles, screws and hardware were aged and sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today for years to come.

Understanding the significance of quality, Guitarwacky Custom 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 strat arrives in a Fender tolex hardshell case pictured. It is in fair to good with bumps and bruises and appears aged and toured.  Case is solid with all hinges and latches working.  The hinge pictured is bent but can be manually closed.

Shipping! No worries here! We loosen string tension then professionally pack using brand new guitar boxes. Don't worry-No packing peanuts.  

Guaranteed to love your guitar or just send it back in same condition received within three days for a full refund(minus delivery shipping).

The relic is absolutely beautiful! And the finish feels wonderful. I tech for the band Lit and the bass player gets relic basses from the fender custom shop, I believe your quality is WAY better.  I would definitely buy another guitar from you. It looks and sounds awesome. My buddy that has a recording studio was super impressed. It is pairing nicely with my Bad Cat Black Cat combo. I finally have my dream rig!
If you ever get another tele, let me know.
Thanks!

David A. – Feb 13th, 2020

Thanks for the awesome relic. This guitar plays amazing. Done right for 1/3 of the price of a custom shop Strat. He doesn’t claim them to be custom shop either, but they are just as good if not better. More unique for sure. Artfully done and quality. Was setup ready to play when I opened up the case.

Fantastic guitar! Very pleasantly surprised how smooth the relic job feels. Plays and sounds like a dream with the custom shop pickups. I set the guitar up for half-step down tuning with the 9's strings it shipped with and haven't had any tuning or intonation issues whatsoever! Would definitely consider purchasing from Bob again. Thanks!!

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.

American Fender Stratocaster Sunburst Relic Noiseless Pickups

David C. – Jul 1st, 2019

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!
