    Any relic fans here? Recently picked up a 2007 Namm Show, special edition, '57 relic Strat. Amazing soft V neck with a modern 9.5 radius. Some like them, some hate relics. Was actually looking for a closet classic, stumbled upon this at a price too good to pass up.

    If it plays good, what's not to like? Nice score.

    That's a heavy relic but pretty cool.

    I love my Road Worn strat. It's a light relic job which looks good to me and it plays and sounds great.

    It is a heavy relic.........I know the body is a two piece, but I can not find the seam. Nitro is sunken into the grain, still puzzled about the seam. Neck is like soft butter. Tone for days. Best part, I really don't think I'll worry about the 1st nick I put in it.
