There’s no denying that relic’d guitars are the hot thing right now, and with Fender Guitars’ original “Road Worn” Series axe doing so well, it only makes sense that Fender would want to continue the success by making some grittier sounding Road Worn geared towards the edgier-, dirtier-style player.

Fender — The popular Road Worn series instruments struck a chord with guitarists with their aged, well-played look and feel and their incredible value.

    Personally I haven’t fell for the “Road Worn” thing. I’m not about to pay for some guy at FMIC to beat the hell out of a guitar before I buy it! If I buy a guitar that looks like that it will be the REAL THING! To buy a guitar that looks like it was drug down the road behind a truck just to make someone THINK I’m playing a vintage guitar is stupid!

    Julian, there are a lot of folks that feel the same way as you. I agree that a distressed guitar has more character when it’s distressed naturally. Nothing wrong with that!

    I cannot believe how affordable the Telecaster is. Hell, for the price, I might be able to buy TWO of these gutiars; one tele and one strat!
