    This is my latest project I've been working on for the past months, its been on the works for over a year but just a few months ago i got back the relic bug for this beautiful Stratocaster, she is about done just need to work on the fingerboard and make clay inlays for her.

    Hope you guys like it.

    Wow, nice!

    I know relics get a lot of backlash, but i love a nicely worn Strat or Tele. How it came about is secondary to me. ;)

    Here is the headstock, still deciding to leave or change to normal tuning keys.

    Thanks.

    Nice job, looks great. I think relic'd nickel tuners would look good. Is that actual play grunge un the fingerboard or some magic concoction?
