About This Listing

No dirt, polyurethane or shoe polish used in any of our relics. We added "mojo" with pigment, and texture, to realistically replicate age and feel of that old heavy relic guitar you've always wanted but couldn't afford. No expense in quality or time was spared to get that custom shop look, feel and sound without shelling out $4-7K. Make Guitarwacky’s Custom Relics your “affordable” alternative. Guitarwacky Custom Relic Finishes ages-the finest affordable American Fender Relic Stratocasters and Telecasters on the market today-with the exception of metal flake finishes; typically under $1500.

Just completed: 7lb 11oz American Fender Stratocaster Custom Relic Faded Vintage Pink Sparkle. This stunning nitrocellulose lacquer finish was professionally and artfully aged by hand. This custom relic began life as a 2006 American Fender Sunburst and is all original except for the vintage tuners.

 Guitarwacky custom finish's are top quality, cutting-edge and proprietary. The sub-base coat is gold pearl; like patina shining through the around finish wear. Lil Daddy Roth "Pink" pearl lacquer base coat over the gold pearl sub-base. The final metal flake coats were Lil Daddy Roth Pink under several clear coats of nitro lacquer. Roth pearls and flake are the essence of 50's-60's cool vintage vibe. This muted vintage pink just pops under light!

Next, the body received the ultimate Guitarwacky proprietary pigment age treatment including vintage shattered glass finish checking. ZOOM IN-that's finish checking on two layers of lacquer. This difficult process defines vintage instruments. The finish product is authentic and gorgeous; see for yourself.  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 hot vintage 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 brand new aftermarket tolex hardshell case pictured. Includes whammy bar not shown in pics.

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 within three days for a full refund(minus delivery shipping).

American Fender Custom Telecaster Standard Relic Blue Sparkle Glenn P. – Aug 4th, 2020

Just received a beautiful functional piece of art. The pictures don't even tell the whole story. Wait till you see one of these in person! In a dim lit room it looks like a vintage tele with a old school paint job which is a look I love. Once light hits the body the sparkle is revealed in all it's glory! Oh man what a sight! So depending on the angle you get a different visual delight. Bob was quick to respond to my questions and told me I would love it and he was right!

Fender Telecaster American Performer Relic 2019 Lavander Purple Sparkle Duncan Tele Stack

The finish work on this guitar is absolutely outstanding! Truly a unique, well-done refinish and relic. I would wager if I put this next to my CS Tele, many people would have difficulty telling them apart

Fender Stratocaster Custom Blue Sparkle Custom Nitro Relic

Wow! This is a work of art! I’m incredibly impressed. I finished the neck w/2500 sand block, and will swap out the american standard w/custom shop Abigail Ybarra hand wound set to complete it. But that’s just me being incredibly picky. This is everything advertised and more! Congrats on your craftsmanship! Bravo!

Kevin M. – Mar 13th, 2020

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!

American Fender Stratocaster Relic Nitro Lime Squeezer Green Sparkle SSS-CS 54'S

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!!
