... do people do this to a perfectly good Strat' ?
The seller says previous keeper did it.
Was the previous keeper a woodpecker?
I would probably say 'the previous seller' did it too, if I had done THAT. Though... I would NEVER do that, so I would never need to say it.
Poor guitar - poor, poor, poor guitar!!!!!
Because it makes it more bestester!!!
Somebody help me wade through the marketing BS speak here. What does "NOS Relic" even mean? They took an actual 1955 Strat and "relic'd" it? Surely not?
That would be perfect on the poster for "more money than brains".
I'll be honest I've seen worse relics.... I won't say whether that's 'genuine Fender' relics (alright, it is!).
Maybe they've nicely aged the hardware etc. as well. If you think about it it's both bold and brave.
Want a vintage looking '55 strat but can't afford the CS relic? Buy a CS NOS and do it yourself.
Custom Shop Strat New Old Stock so was brand new looking at one time 55 replica then a 12 year old SRV/RHCP fanboy got a hold of it with more money than brains. Should have just bought a heavy relic cause man that is bad.
NOS - unless I am SORELY mistaken, I don't believe I am - means 'New Old Stock', in other words a 1955 Strat that in theory (not reality) has been... I don't know - lying out the back of a store, under a... something or other. In other words - it's 'new', but it's still '65' years old. It's not really though!!! It just 'looks' that way... but THIS ONE DOES NOT LOOK THAT WAY!!!!!!!
That's pretty horrible whatever the year.
That's what I took New Old Stock to mean as well...that this was an actual 1955 Strat. If it's actually a REPLICA of a 1955 Strat, then it's not really NOS, right? Geez, this is exhausting...
And I still quite like it.
Yes – it's a modern replica, but believe me – for a short period, a few years back - I thought and wondered the same thing, so don't worry about it! I think to be super accurate - 'NOS' possibly refers to the finish, more than anything - as in 'NOS' finish, Light Relic, 'Journeyman' - and so on... but it is a little misleading to those who value the meaning of words! I mean... 'New Old Stock' is a real thing elsewhere, if something is 'New Old Stock', it literally and generally means exactly what the words themselves mean... – except when it comes to these guitars !
Serial number starts with an R so it came from Fender as a “Relic”
Why would a guitar -even a heavily used one- have horizontal scratches (understatement of the year. Already) above the pick guard?
Are you sure it doesn’t stand for Ruined ....
Indeed. I own a NOS CS strat. Made in 2016.
My biggest beef is that it's just not very convincing... I mean, anybody can hack up a guitar with a butter knife!
I'd seriously be too embarrassed to admit I ever did anything like that...
'He cheated on me!?', 'I'm going to show him... where is his guitar... his pride and joy!?
Where is that stupid guitar!?', 'there it is!!!',
'Cheating on me, with her – I'm going to show him!!'.
'I am going to DESTROY that guitar on him!'
