    I don't really care for relic finishes, but when I tried a MJT tele I bought it. Simply because it felt incredebly good to play and I really liked the sound of the guitar. I would have bought the guitar whether it was reliced or not, and I think that says quite a bit :)

    The Jenny's are awesome to work with and the body I got from them is excellent.

    Note that Mark Jenny does not do perfect finishes. The cleanest he goes is "closet clean." Mine came looking like a really nice used body with a few small scrapes and dings. I've put a good amount more noticeable dings in it the six months I've had it. It's my first nitro finished guitar, so I don't know if they all get dinged as easily, but it doesn't bother me since I play the guitar a lot and want it to get naturally worn.

    Nice body dayold :)

    I'm liking a rosewood neck on that color but a maple will work too.

    My MJT is great and no complaints from me.

    I wrote a full spec sheet detailing exactly what I wanted and this made the process very easy for them and I got what I asked for.

    Here she is with a couple of friends.

    Stellar! I had a hardtail Strat body done by them last year and they did exactly what I wanted.
    Will be doing another with them in the coming months. 7E565D39-F9B4-4347-874F-66CCDE671BF6.jpeg

    Had issues with both of my orders from MJT being way out of spec.

    had two MJTs. one parts build and one full build from them. the first was okay. sticky neck. like it wasnt cured long enough.

    second had a twisted neck and then when asked what they could do, they gave me a quote on a new neck. albeit, i wasnt the original owner, it left a sour taste in my mouth.
