Relic Custom from The Luthiers Vault. Who needs a completely name brand custom guitar, with paperwork, when you can own THIS? The best beautiful vintage look and feel of a road worn instrument, on planet Earth. I will some day regret selling it. The body was relic'd, assembled, stained, wipe-on poly coated and hand sanded smooth in the U.S.A, with many hours spent visualizing what the finest relic on planet Earth, should look like. I do not clone guitars. I build Vintage Relic partscasters to suit my personal touch... so don't expect exact specifications of what a $12.5K to $25K all original vintage guitar has. It's got Fender Custom Shop Pickups (no, unfortunately I cannot remember which ones). It's got the Full Sized Trem Block, I do remember having to shave it down to fit properly inside the body... and that it took about 4 hours to plane the back side. My fingertips are still throbbing. The worn pickguard, is done in aged Mint Green. The bridge saddles and tuners were done to my preference (rather than seeking any clone appeal). It has plenty of dents, chips, cracks, blemishes, wear and sentiments attached to this piece. What more can I say? It comes with an extremely worn old yellowish tweed hardcase... to take on the road with you. It's super light weight... est. 6lbs. The body is extremely resonant... and it sounds incredible. Looks, incredible... and all that jazz...

This item will not sell for any less than it's asking price (and, if it does not sell I will most likely be glad it's staying right where it is...). Just sayin'... it's a no-disappointment piece, folks! Is As-IS... and all sales are final.

Please make sure to ask all questions prior to ordering.

I do unfortunately only ship to the 48 U.S. Continental States and all used gear is sold as-is. I do ship within 24hrs. of your purchase payment.

Disclosure: ALL GUITARS MAY REQUIRE A SET UP!!! Players have such varied opinions that I no longer want to hear about it.

Thanks for looking!
