So i just got this new strat!







It's a daphne blue Classic 50's strat!
The neck is in all honesty THE Nicest neck of any guitar i've played.
The body is really light (I'm used to a les paul) and it's been set up really well.
The pickups sound really nice, Although i'll probably put a JB Jr in the bridge, and coil split it.
This is my first relic guitar and i have to say i love it!

One downside, when i got it, the bridge wire care unsoldered and i couldn't get it back on, so i took an eyelet tag, and tagged it around one of the screws holding the springs in the back. Problem solved!

Oh man, that's beautiful. Use a shoe string for a strap and you have the most punk guitar of all time. But seriously HNGD.

more like custom shop.

I see, but the lack of the words "Custom Shop" in the OP kinda confused me.

It's just a classic 50's strat that's been relic'd

Awesome!

My first thought when I saw it was that it looked a lot like Menno's guitar from Hollerado.(Hollerado is a great Canadian band for all you Americans!)

Yours is more beat up, but I seen them live and it's pretty similar. Cool stuff!

Nice. Love 50's Strat necks so much, my Tele has one. Happy time-bending gear day!
I am a fake mountain.

Nice, I wonder how long it would take to reach this level naturally..My first guitar barely has much paint coming off, its more of a dent magnet.

Yeah, my others barely have a dent or anything on them. I've had a bass around 6 years, and all that's happenned it the paints started yellowing. I'll let you know in another 50 years how it looks! haha

HNGD.

Don't like tho. =/

I'm not a fan of relic'd finishes / actual relic'd guitars, I'd rather have my guitar looking clean and new.

Whatever floats your boat tho. I hope that sounds as beastly as it looks.

Scratches, dents, dings, and chips add character.
They show a well loved, well used, and well toured guitar.
It's like every scar on your body. Each one has it's own story.
It tells the guitar's story and it's history.
That said, I don't like artificially reliced guitars.
They don't have the same magic to them as a well loved, well used guitar does.
Anyway, HNGD man!
#33
I know what you're saying dude! Although i don't have a story about how it got 'aged', i do have a story about how i bought it, but i'll save that for a rainy day haha
