The custom finish by Bob at Guitarwacky is beyond belief. The impressive photos taken of this masterpiece still don’t capture the detail. I’m not religious, but DEAR LORD…….this Jazzmaster is GORGEOUS! I haven’t plugged it yet, but I’ll tell you now……based on the superior craftsmanship and detail……..it’s going to sound amazing. I’ll definitely be a Repeat customer.
Amazing quality finish. By far one of the most well done and convincing relic jobs I’ve ever seen. Setup was perfect out of the box and immediately felt like and instrument I’ve been playing for years. I am very impressed by the attention to detail on all of the hardware relicing, and I would say the overall finish is on par or better than some of the custom shop fenders and relic novo’s I’ve played.

By far the best relic work I’ve seen. Beautiful guitar. Fret work is also amazing. You can tell many hours were spent on fine details that many tend to leave unnoticed when relicing. Had guitar shipped out right away. Great guy to work with, would highly recommend!

Wow what a cool thing you have created there! Really a spectacular finish color and technique, love the feel of the neck and the electronics and hardware all work perfectly and look to have been on this particular guitar un-disturbed for decades. Quick shipping, friendly messaging and well packed with a great fitted fender guitar case. Really impressed in every respect – thanks Robert!

I wasn’t looking for a “relic’d” guitar, but was looking for a gold sparkle one. 🙂 And, didn’t want to pay Fender Custom Shop prices. Very pleased with the guitar, the finish and the set up! Thank you, Guitarwacky!

This guitar is amazing! The attention to detail on the relic job is incredible, and the finish itself is amazing. The guitar shipped quickly and arrived two days after I ordered it. Right out of the box it was well set up and it played beautifully!
