I have a relic (not heavy) 61 Strat and a 57 NOS Strat. They are both Wildwood 10 CS models. The relic treatment is okay but not outstanding. The guitar itself is fantastic. The NOS is gorgeous with beautiful grain. I like both. Relics, whether they are light, medium or heavy can be good or bad. Some heavy relics are stunning while others are underwhelming or fugly. It’s like any finish option: some are better than others.
