I've decided to get a Relic Telecaster (no anti-Relic rants, please, it's just a finish option). Wildwood is about 150 miles away, and I could go there and pick through a plethora of them, and it'll cost me $4-5k. Or, I can buy used off of Reverb and save $1-2k. That's a lot of money to me at this time of my life. It's my impression, from watching a zillion demo videos, that these things are pretty darn consistent. Some ring more than others, but not much. For those of you who have played a lot of Relic Telecasters, what's *your* experience? Are they very consistent, as per my uninformed impression, or do they vary widely enough that a personal inspection is paramount? To clarify, I am NOT talking about the finish. I'm talking about the guitar as a guitar.
