Welcome to GuitarMax where we sell only the finest quality used guitars money can buy. Quality. Guitars. Period. Each instrument has been meticulously reconditioned by a professional luthier to exceed its original specifications. Please be sure to check us out at our website and on social media for more information.

Here is a beautiful blueish green over gold nitro relic custom build, using 100% genuine Fender parts. The body is from a late model Squier Affinity, and the neck is from a rare early 1990s Fender MIM Black label Strat with Wilkinson Deluxe vintage tuners. There was some cool patina to the original wood so I stripped off the old finish and sealed it in with a fresh coat of satin polyurethane and aged it to match. The tremolo is from a 1990s Fender with a solid brass block upgrade- the sustain is unreal. The pickups are Fender Classic Series 50s, the electronics are all OEM Fender MIM, and the entire cavity and pickguard have been shielded in copper for super quiet playability. This thing sounds and plays killer and as an added bonus it’s pretty light, even considering the solid brass trem block.

This guitar has been fully restored. Everything has been meticulously cleaned and detailed. The electronics have been tested and are 100% operational. The frets have been leveled, crowned, ends dressed, and polished to perfection. Freshly set up on brand new 10-46 strings. Nut, truss rod, action, and intonation have been dialed in to absolute perfection. This guitar plays smoothly up and down the neck without buzzing.

I’m listing this in “very good” condition as it is completely destroyed, but it’s a relic guitar and that’s the point, right? Its all intentional and there is no actual damage to report.

Please note- The hole for the tremolo arm doesn’t quite line up due to differences between the bridge plate and the brass trem block, making it unusable. Unfortunately this is one of the only brass blocks I could get that fit these squier bodies. I will include an original trem block with the sale, and can pre install it for you (if requested) if you plan to use the trem.

We offer full customization options for any instrument listed. From paint and body modifications to full electronics and hardware upgrades, please feel free to message us for details.

This guitar is sold as is. Nothing else is included unless otherwise noted. By default default this guitar will ship with the neck unbolted unless a hard case is specifically included. Please message me if this is an issue or if instructions are needed to re attach. Each guitar will receive a full setup immediately after payment. Please note some settling may occur in transit, final adjustments may be necessary.
