Relic Stratocaster Sale

Relic (actually a survivor) Stratocaster with tapped vintage type humbucker. Loud and crunchy.

The body is solid wood (medium weight) and has been abused over its life time. Finished in dark brown and black, fully serviced, very little surgery was needed to make it healthy again. Battle scars, dents, crackled paint (in places) - not shiny and new. All I did was buff the paintwork with a mop. I love it!!!!!

We also have Telecaaster Style guitars made from reclaimed wood on offer.

This one is a mixture of a Stratocaster and a Nashville Telecaster type guitar made from salvaged wood. The pickup configuration has the flexibility of a Stratocaster, with five switch positions, two tone controls and the Telecaster sound from the bridge pickup.

The timber I use is upcycled, repurposed and recycled. Each guitar is unique and not repeatable.

This one is made from salvaged pieces of wood that were off cuts from the construction of a house roof.

Our brand mission - Rat Bait Guitars

We use parts from the 1970s right up to the 2020s, mixed together to give the experience of 'heritage', not the fake visual illusion of 'relic'. The aim is to produce guitars that are very playable and sound better than the average homogenised crap that is out there. They won't be shiny and shimmering - they will look rugged, with a few battle scars but they will compliment any serious guitar collection.
