Trans white over vintage white is an awesome color combo for this custom relic stratocaster. This nitro relic was inspired by a 2009 American Fender Stratocaster Deluxe with vintage trem and Rosewood neck in medium “C” profile. We powered this baby with a set of Fender Custom Shop 69 pickups (signed by Abby Ybarra herself). Additionally we supercharged the Custom Shop Pups with a 500k Vol Pot and treble bleed circuitry. Tons of finish checking make this a real beauty. Frets leveled and polished then; intonated and set up low action, this tone monster is ready for the stage. This is not an off the rack strat! No dirt or shoe polish used on our pro relics, all wear is done with nitro and pigment then protected under nitro clear coat.
Guitarwacky’s Custom Relic finishes surpass most relic fan’s expectations because we spare no expense in quality or time, to get that custom shop look, feel and sound without shelling out $3-5K. Our one-off heavy relic finished guitars set themselves apart from other relics with quality hand rubbed custom nitro neck and body finishes, plus one-off totally custom tinted guards, covers and knobs. They look like old barn and attic find relic guitars-plain and simple! We don’t just pump them out by slapping new loaded pick guards on what is thought to be an aged guitar. It is cutting corners on time cost and originality; assembly lines do that!
Guitarwacky’s proprietary finish process involves several coats of nitro lacquer, the finish is totally hand sanded, rubbed and aged. Several satin nitro clear coats are processed by hand into a softened and smooth aged luster. This Stratocaster finish is beautifully aged, soft and smooth to the touch.
