       Fender CS Treatments

Fender Relic-  There and back and still here today. The authentic worn-in wear of a guitar that has experienced many years of regular use in clubs and bars. Marks that tell a story, finish checking all over the body, and scars, dings and dents from bridge to headstock.

Fender Heavy Relic-  Hard fought wear and tear. 
The heaviest of the Custom Shop relic treatments, designed to evoke decades of the most punishing play and touring. From serious dinging and wear to intensely discolored hardware and finish, the true battle-hardened workhorse of the Custom Shop collection.


Fender Closet Classic-  Kept in a case most of its life and perhaps even forgotten. No real playing wear, but more subtle indications of the ages, such as a finish that has lost its sheen, mild discoloration of plastic parts, metal hardware showing slight oxidation, and minor surface scratches on the body and headstock.



Fender Custom Shop NOS- (New Old Stock)-  As it was bought NEW that year.  Models from the past that have survived to the present day looking brand new. An all-lacquer finish that looks as if it hasn’t aged at all. As if you went back in time and bought it.
Fender Journeyman Relic-  Used but not abused. Handed down or changed hands through the years, but mostly played around the house, with the occasional jam session or weekend gig. Has been well taken care of over the years but has finish checking, some “friendly” down-to-the-wood nicks and dings, dull hardware, and moderate playing wear, a very lucky find.
