Fender Stratocaster RelicLately I've been having a powerful craving to purchase a Fender Telecaster and have been scouring the web looking at different models, configurations, colors, options, etc. I've seen many-a-plenty Tele's and as my desire and knowledge have grown, with it I've begun to feel more and more disgusted with the relatively new trend of brand new, factory made "Relic" guitars.

Everything in its own time and the performance time is upon me. Gonna break free of cobwebs and the zone-out room and walk back into the musical world brandishing a warm smile and temperament. Out and into where I belong.
