    Glad to be able to say that my build from @Lone Star is finished, after much anticipation. Wired with a single volume and series/parallel switching, this Esquire is absolutely epic. Its got a huuuuuge fat neck and matching headstock - hard to go wrong really! Pics:

    A massive thank you to @Joey for putting his trust in such a young company. Im delighted that between us we were able to realise the goal. And thank you all for the comments.

    It has taken a lot of hard work, early mornings, late nights, missing my children, coffee and money to put the business in this position. Never take it for granted how much work goes into a guitar be it from a sole trader or a massive company. The end result is something that we can enjoy, communicate through and admire for years to come.

    Im keen to hear this @Joey , that Lil 59 should sound mega through the JMP!

    And a personal thank you to my wife, Laura. If anyone here has enjoyed or is going to enjoy an SC Relics Guitar at some point please be assured that this could not have been possible without her.

    After having the guitar for a while now, I can wholeheartedly say that the build quality and overall playability of the guitar is excellent. Really impressed with the finish/ageing and it resonates so loudly that I often just play it unplugged! Anyone who is keen to put something together - you know where to go ;)

    You are too kind, sir. I love that colour too. I actually have a strat body here with no nitro on it.. im thinking surf green could be an option.

    You'll need to send me a recording of it through the amp.
