    I was in my local guitar shop today and spotted a couple of these. I don’t really like the way they do the wear on the Mexican RWs, but I’m getting a serious crush on shell pink with a matching headstock after seeing these.

    Not into relics but it's a cool guitar. I like the deeper pink than this one, what color is that?

    I’d be all over it if they could only come with a rosewood fretboard. I’m terrible, I know.

    I think Shell Pink gets darker with age, too, as long as it's nitro. I had a Shell Pink American Standard Strat that looked pretty washed out and I sold it. I have an AV56 in Shell Pink now that is already a darker hue.

    Any coolness it might have is totally negated by the horrible looking Relic work on the Road Worn Series instruments. It's truly godawful work.

    Yeah. I’ve not seen a ton of RWs in person but they always look fake. It’s like they’ve gone round the edge and hit it with a toffee hammer. And £1250? Hmmmmmm...

    Still, that colour...
