The latest shipment from Hosco arrived Monday. Things are still not back to normal with suppliers/shipments, so I am getting smaller deliveries as and when products are available rather than one big order all at once. If you are not signed up to product notifications or following on instagram you may not have seen the […]
Another batch of 50s inspired blondes have arrived, once again beautifully aged by SC Relics. As with the last batch they show various levels of ageing but without a case queen or road warrior this time – more light to medium ageing with tan lines, grain sink and checking. Unlike last time they don’t have […]
A new batch of aged bodies are now available with finishing and ageing work expertly undertaken by Scott at SC Relics as usual. This batch had a theme – blackguards through the years. We wanted to show various levels of ageing from almost new to 50 years on the road in smokey bars. We used […]
Second of the shipments from Japan that left Japan in the last two weeks (the first still hasn’t arrived but I’m crossing my fingers for some good news later today) includes a couple of new products. First up is Gotoh’s relic vintage Telecaster bridge. I’ve included both the official Gotoh pic and one of my […]
The eagle eyed will have noticed some new items added to the store last night. A new batch of nitro relic bodies are here. Click through for large detail pics and full descriptions of each body (and please excuse the reflections in a few pics – I will rectify when I have some time!). Continued […]
Well, one new one and a few new products being given the relic treatment. New in are vintage spec Telecaster control plates. As Hosco stopped offering their plate for some reason I’ve had my supplier make these to Fender spec and 1.6mm thick. Just like the 2mm plates, these are the same length and […]
Here is a sneak peak at the next batch of nitro finished relic bodies coming my way, once again finished by SC Relics. Due in 4-5 weeks the plan is for light ageing, however if you want to reserve a body now you can specify a different level of ageing! I haven’t settled on the […]
A small shipment has arrived, bringing the welcome return of gold Gretsch style knobs stainless steel block saddles and Tele PBass control plates! For those that missed the new items from the Gotoh shipment, I now have Gotoh Fender-style relic strap pins and Gotoh relic “butterfly” string trees available in the store.
For those of you who are not followers of the Facebook page, the Hosco/Gotoh shipment arrived yesterday. Only delayed by a day due to weather, which is not too bad. I will be weighing and photographing the bodies over the weekend but I have checked everything else and some out of stock lines are now […]
Right handed versions of the Gotoh Kluson style tuners (SD91, Relic SD91 and Locking SD91) are now back in stock. I expect to send back the remainder of the left-handed tuners this week, so if any lefties are thinking about picking up a set you need to be quick!
