    That white would be my choice as well from that group. Good luck!

    Had to chuckle they all appear to be reliced identically. :)

    Yep that white one is pretty hot. Kinda digging the pink one, too for some reason. Pink isn't usually my speed.

    Agree with @Mickey about the preprogrammed relic patterns. I'd love to know how they pull that off economically.

    Probably. I've never seen CNCs used for finishing but I guess they can do anything these days.

    all about the burst and pink hss on the left

    the relic job isn't awful, but it's a little odd that it's exactly the same on all of them..

    Maybe they get the same Chinese guy to play them 20 hours a day for. 50cents an hour. After two months they change colors. :sneaky::sneaky:

    I don't do relics (I just think fake-aging a guitar is silly), but that white one is nice! I'm assuming you mean rosewood fretboard because the necks appear to be maple. Do they make any with maple boards or is this guy just partial to rosewood?

    My new made up rule is that if you buy a new reliced guitar you have to play "Rhinestone Cowboy" (hey I do like some Glen Campbell, but that's another thread); wear some acid washed jeans with factory installed holes, brand new cowboy boots and a BABB (big awesome belt buckle) from Amazon. Throw some shrimp on the barbie.
    I'll stop.

    After having a plain white strat as my main guitar for 20 plus years. Even with my natural relicing (mostly just chips) I suggest something with more interest. Maybe if its real nitro with a thin finish and will wear in reasonably but if its a fake painted in wear in poly? naw.
    Similar wear but very nice.

    I thought these were wild. Sort of stylized concept relic.
    No one can accuse these of being poser guitars. Just very interesting.
