To be honest, one of the biggest influences on the guitars we build, came when I played a friend’s ’62 Strat for a couple of years. Like most players, I love the look and feel of vintage guitars, but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice the attention to detail and the playability in the guitars we build, just to offer a relic guitar. After years of saying no to the request for a relic guitar, the Aged Artist is now a part of the Melancon lineup and will deliver 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 of a guitar that has been lovingly played for years. All of the woods and colors of the vintage era guitars are available on the Aged Artist.
