    I bought a sunburst RoadWorn 50s tele couple of months ago. I never liked the relics... Body was OK, but all RW's are/were reliced the same way, so that felt cheap. The neck had very unrealistic relicing job and the neck had very durable polyurethane...I definitely did not like it. Otherwise all of the 50s RW that I have tried have been just fantastic instruments!

    So, I finally grabbed one (made in 2010) and refinished it with very thin nitro and did my own version of aging to it. Plays and feels absolutely amazing now!

    Very tasteful!

    The roadworns are a great series. Very consistent.
