For a couple of years, customers have asked if we would offer relic guitars. I always said no, without hesitation. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the look and feel of a vintage guitar as much as the next guy, but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice the attention to detail and the playability of a Melancon guitar, just to offer a relic guitar. Well a couple of years in the making, and here it is! The Aged Artist T has all of the attention to detail that will insure the neck pocket is tight, the frets are perfectly dressed and polished to give you the best of old and new in one exceptional instrument. The nitro-cellulose lacquer finish and hand relicing will give each Aged Artist the feel that it has been lovingly played for years. All traditional woods and colors are available so you can create your dream guitar that will play and sound as good as it looks!
