Vintage And Used Electric Guitars

In 1994 a small team at Fender spearheaded by Vince Cunetto began producing classic reissues that were extremely well-built but intentionally distressed to make them look as it they had actually weathered a career since their year of their production specs. 
  In 1995, Fender debuted those models at NAMM Show, and orders from dealers all over the world overflowed into Fender. Those "aged" replica prototypes give birth to Fender relics.    Four years later, in Mar.1999, Vince Cunetto received a phone call from Mike Eldred manager of Fender Custom Shop, informing him and his team that Fender intended to do all the relic in-house after they fininshed their current back orders. The last Cunetto relic was shipped out in May. 1999. In late 1999, time machines and relic series became Fender custom shop institutions.
    Today, Vince  Cunetto’s Relics(Jun 1994---May.1999), has became modern collectable, this particular guitar is an excellent example of his work from the 90s. The 60s Olympic White Relic was one of the first of those made. It features one piece ash body,  one piece Birdseye maple neck, aged hardware, vintage single-coil pickups and etc.

Overall this guitar is in an excellent condition. The pickups have been upgraded to Lindy Fralin pickups, and the originals are also included, in the case. 
It includes the OHSC, some case candy, C of A, and all in the pics! An absolutely amazing representation of a reproduction of a classic instrument!!!
