    Last week I got this new Custom Shop 1951 Nocaster in heavy relic and I love it.. plays very nice and sounds like a Tele should sound. Some people don't like beat up guitars and some do.. like me.. hahaha.. Now I feel that my other teles don't sound that good.. hahahahahaha

    That's really nice.
    I would like one but I don't have the chops or credibility to put that much playing-wear onto a Tele.

    HNGD - that is super-sweet!!

    Love the relic - and just ignore the "relic-haters" ... you got yourself a Custom Shop guitar, the way YOU want it!

    HNGD! I'm not usually a lover of relics but that's a mighty fine instrument. Enjoy!

    Yes, my local shop does relic'd custom shop guitars. I just don't feel I can pull off the image.

    If your other Tele's don't sound so good anymore then you should send them my way so I can properly dispose of them for you.:cool:

    Congrats on the new Axe! It looks great man.

    I want one so bad... I love the look of those custom shop relics... The only thing is ive heard the custom shops have insanely huge necks. Not sure why they are so big, but my hands are not super huge. Whats the neck like on your tele?

    Sweet Tele. I’m not a big fan of the relic treatment generally but every CS relic I’ve played felt amazing to play. I’ve got fiesta red ‘66 relic Strat which I don’t really like the looks of but I can’t put it down.

    I’ve got Tele GAS really badly at the moment and this isn’t helping!
