I just picked up one of their '63 model strats today. Holy crap! It's an incredible guitar. Nitro finish, really nice rosewood fretboard (grain so fine and smooth it almost feels like ebony), really playable, slightly wider than a Nash or authentic vintage Fender neck, blackface Lollar pups. It just sings man, it's really really nice. Anyone else ever played one? I'll post pics sometime... it's also probably the nicest, most realistic-looking relic guitar I've seen. I'd have taken it in a non-relic finish if i could have gotten it, but still, it doesn't look thrashed. just looks lovingly cared for and old.
