    Agreed. That thing looks like sh*t.

    Looks more like a squier body salvaged from a garage fire with some new hardware put on it. Definitely doesn't look road worn.

    So many clowns on ebay. :scowl:

    Looks like a cross between an oil spill and a wildfire.

    You'd think given their pride in their relic-ing, they'd age the hardware also.

    I like it. The hardware is a joke, though.

    For the price they get for their guitars and basses I don't think it is to bad.
    Half the price of a Fender MIM relic.
    Their feedback is good.

    You do get what you pay for

    Who can believe a reliced body with shiny hardware and a neck that does not look like it has ever been played!

    Yeah was my thought. How "authentic" can it be with a new pickguard, bridge, pickup covers, control plate, etc. :meh:

    Maybe the term "partially restored relic" would be more appropriate.

    Well... I kinda like it. I guess that I don't think of it as a "relic" but more of a unique finish. I dig it. I don't need relic style hardware. I like it the way it is.

    can't stop giggling at the shiny brand new chrome complimenting the light a match at the sewer plant relic look. anyone have a gong?

    I like it... although I'd prefer a P-Bass version.

    The serial number on the headstock reveals that they are taking 90's, MN series MIM basses and giving them the "treatment."

    I like it. And while I agree, it's horrible if they are calling that a relic job, I like that it looks like the finish has melted off.

    It looks like it was in close proximity to a moderate sized nuclear blast.
