1 CaughtInTheACT 1 year ago Yes, you can always relic a guitar, but with one of these all the hard work has already been done. I bought this on the weekend from the local Cash Converts for $130, it's a AXL Badwater SRO. Believe it or not, it's bran spankin new. No fret wear at all, and everything perfect except missing the whammy bar. No bullshit, I've owned LPs, Teles, Matons, Ibanez and this thing kills them all for sound and is just as playable. Rock maple and rosewood neck with alder body, anodized hardware, and really excellent pots and switch - no crackles or pops. The name is actually branded into the headstock. I fell in love with this damn thing the moment we looked into each others eyes.
