they are aged, one of my biggest pet peeves about 99% of relics Fenders included, is the metal parts look like they were dug up from the titanic, versus real wear. Chrome doesn't age like that.
Take for instance a 56 chevy sitting out in a field for 50+ years the chrome will be cloudy but it wont look like most relic
hardware. EVER. It just lightly scratches and oxidizes.
You would have to see it in real life.
