Custom and Relic Aged Custom Guitars and Parts!

Welcome to Relic Guitars UK. We set up to provide the discerning guitar player with a custom guitar playing experience without having to pay 'Boutique' built or USA custom shop prices.

We specialise in unique, hand crafted instruments that celebrate the natural beauty and age of the wood we source.

All of our guitars and parts are aged or 'reliced' with care and skill to simulate years of wear and tear.

We only use the finest timbers including old growth wood blanks to create our unique guitars.

RELIC FINISH OPTIONS

Stratocaster Strat Relic Guitar Sunburst

HARD-WORN

For those that prefer a heavier relic finish. This finish looks like a guitar that has been well played over the years. Has some heavy wear areas, dings and weather checking.

SHIPWRECK

This is one of our special finishes and can come in a variety of forms but is inspired by a nautical theme. The finish can be distressed wood or a specialist paint that contains real metal pigments that age and distress the way real metal would if left to the elements.

BARNWOOD

This is one of our special finishes and will vary depending on the type and age of wood used. The finish is a special distressed finish that replicates years of being exposed to the elements. The special finish actually changes the chemical composition of the wood and brings out the natural tannin, just like wood that has been outside for decades.
