Experimental Black 60's Custom Shop Relic | Kenny Wayne Shepherd

Built from spare parts laying around Fender's Custom Shop, this guitar was one of the first black guitars that the Custom shop tried to relic. The Custom Shop was trying out different techniques of aging guitars to make new ones appear old, so this was essentially an experimental guitar that was never meant to be sold. J.W. Black took the pieces, made a neck to Kenny's specifications and sent it to him, but not before trying some different techniques to create some wear marks on the back of the guitar to simulate the wear and tear from musicians belt buckles and other techniques to “age” the front of the guitar as well.
