John Cruz has definitely got the super relic thing down. Check these out. Opinions?

nice teles...

though I think the frets are kinda too shiny for guitars "of age" hehe. Of course that's a trade off on playability...

Retro City Don!

Where did you get those knobs?
Off of an old Silvertone Stereo?

BTW. the Fender Booth had really nicely executed relics - I complimented one of the head honchos there - I hope John Cruz is getting paid well -- seems he is doing their finest relic work over there today!!

I'd show you my Old World, but then you'd have to buy one.
I don't want to do that to you guys!

I think a mint green guard on a black fender with a maple neck is about as good as it gets. I have that combo on one of my strats.
