Relic images below! Checkout our other affordable relics and don’t forget to follow us on our Guitarwacky Reverb.com Shop so you can be notified when we finish the next project. We use the highest quality HVLP nitro lacquers, flakes and pearls.
No dirt, polyurethane or shoe polish used in any of our relics. We added “mojo” with pigment, and texture, to realistically replicate age and feel of that old heavy relic guitar you always wanted but couldn’t afford. No expense in quality or time was spared to get that custom shop look, feel and sound without shelling out $4-7K. Make Guitarwacky’s Custom Relics your “affordable” alternative.
Just completed: 2007 American Fender custom heavily aged Lil Bad Azz Blue Sparkle nitro relic. Totally custom authentically aged nitro lacquer finish makes this an absolutely gorgeous one-off custom. Lil Daddy Roth .008 metal flake over silver and blue pearl candy; done in nitro lacquer. This guitar finish pops and changes in different lighting. Additionally, the geometric finish checking is stunning and beautiful. It is noticeable from different angles and lighting and adds another awesome dimension against the metal flake.
This beautiful custom heavy relic Strat plays and feels like an authentic custom guitar should. Fender Custom Shop 69 Pickups take it to a searing level of vintage tone when needed. Additionally installed is a “500k volume pot” to help you get there faster with treble bleed circuitry for the best tonal range possible. Slinky 09’s; she’s ready to go! Six point vintage tuners, bridge saddles, screws and hardware were aged and sealed, so that they will look tomorrow, the way they look today for years to come.
Guitarwacky’s proprietary finish process involves several coats of HVLP nitro lacquer, the finish is totally hand sanded, rubbed and aged to perfection. This guitar’s finish was artfully aged and is soft and smooth to the touch.
Understanding the significance of quality, Guitarwacky Custom relics are flawlessly detailed by artisans whose love for guitar can only be measured by the level of detail embodied within their relic art. This heavy relic arrives in the “Fender TSA case” pictured.

Fantastic guitar! Very pleasantly surprised how smooth the relic job feels. Plays and sounds like a dream with the custom shop pickups. I set the guitar up for half-step down tuning with the 9’s strings it shipped with and haven’t had any tuning or intonation issues whatsoever! Would definitely consider purchasing from Bob again. Thanks!!

Sweet guitar from Guitarwacky! Looks great. Plays great. Sounds great. Great communication from seller and super fast shipping. Would definitely buy another guitar from Guitarwacky—and probably will when I get GAS again.
Probably one of the best guitar purchases i’ve ever made. Matches the quality, sound, appearance, and play-ability of a custom shop relic at 1/3 the cost. Couldn’t be happier.
Amazing Telecaster! Great seller with excellent communication.
Guitarwacky does excellent work ! Thanks 😃 June 01, 2019

This is an absolutely gorgeous guitar. Best relic job I’ve seen. Plays like butter. Thanks!
Superb! This guitar is everything I hoped it would be and then some. A quick preface is that I have a 74′ Strat I love, a 2018 Fender custom shop 57′ Strat for 4k. This one feels better than the custom.I love the feel of a nice worn in guitar and sometimes when I want to get something new I like the option of having the feel of a beautiful old Strat without the insane price tag.
This guitar nailed that! The relic work is amazing! The neck and fretboard are so smooth! Absolutely Love It!
great guitar. and Bob is super nice, easy to deal with.
Fast shipping, beautiful relic job. Thanks so much!
