Choose your relic level...

Your guitar comes with a very light relic right out of the box… However, you can increase the relic level in increments to emulate a well gigged guitar. We offer the mild relic (standard with every instrument), a medium relic and, of course, a heavy relic level that resembles a “beat up”, gigged but loved guitar.


The relic is achieved using a proprietary process that employs aniline dyes, natural tints and oils and nitrocellulose lacquer. You can increase your relic level at no extra cost.
