    Great job. On paper that could have gone horribly wrong, but you nailed it. Looks killer.

    I love it. Really love it!!!! If it plays as cool as it looks that’s a number one man! Well done. I know what I’m going to be thinking about building all weekend! Congrats!

    It really sounds like the real deal......no baseplate on the custom wound bridge pickup.....very strat like....biggest frets I’ve ever played...but no probs.......high action and big strings that I’ve always used since I started,were inspired by THE #1.......so that’s no adjustment......I originally conceived of this in 1987 as a modified 62 reissue....glad I waited till now........now that we are in the world of relic guitars and boutique pickups......lol

    That's very nice. Totally different from my imagination, but really fantastic. Good work. I especially like the look of the axetreme body finish.

    Man, what a great guitar! I'm not normally a relic guy, but I looked at that and thought: that's cooler than a Polar Bear's butt. Wow!

    That’s awesome. Relics are much more pleasing when they’re an interesting, distressed paint effect rather than trying to just look a bit played. That looks like a custom shop. Great job.
