Well folks, Here is a HEAVY HEAVY relic for you relic fans.

Finally got my allparts order in with the pickguard I needed to finish this Highway One Fender Strat up.

I think she looks great. Need to get proper photographs tomorrow to really show this sucker off but for the mean time heres a couple.

Brett

PS. I forgot to age the block LOL guess its not done back to work, and she needs strings haha

Re: Well folks, Here is a HEAVY HEAVY relic for you relic fans.

it looks great and the neck which looks newer says that it'll play real well. aged guitars have so much character and contrary to some ppl not wanting ascrach on their guitars its got attitude, i can imagine myself with an aged instrument for sure likemy old fender sunnmustang...love the curves on the body like all HW1s...nice guitar dude!

I dont keep them I work on them and sell them. I do relics as a small business I started it last year and its going well

I currently dont own any relics LOL imagine that. Hell I dont even play guitar anymore I made the move to bass a year or so ago, but Jemsite is still my first home..

Here is a project im working on for myself.

Its got a transparent black back with a highly figured flame top in a slight amber dye.

I agree, but only when they're naturally beaten up over the course of a few years/decades. New guitars that have methodically been relic'd just don't really do anything for me. Just my opinion though.

I'm still not into the relic thing but I'd say you did a great job. It looks authentic.

It's looks good to me. What do you charge to throw guitar across the room?
