i've seen a bunch of the fender relic series, but had never taken much notice of them until now. seems like every guitar center in the usa has a jaco j-bass reproduction hanging on the wall (until it sells that is). so now having seen a couple of them (and the picture of it on the fender site), just how do they do such consistant distressing? granted, i couldn't do any side-by-side visual comparison, but they all looked pretty damn close. i guess it woudln't be impossible to put together a cnc setup, but that seems like overkill. is all the distressing hand-done? anybody know? j.
