Well it's here and it's a cracker :D

The relic job is a bit strange as it's been lacquered over the top (???) but it looks great, feels great, sounds great and plays great. WHat more can you ask for???

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but just to add some more info. The relic run from 2006 was made up of 12 guitars, 6 were sold via Coda Music. They have one left in stock at ?750 (list price was ?1000). It's been there a while so there must be something not quite right about it. They apparantly take ...

..and another reply:
Coda had 6 from us we get around 12 a year as it takes so long to produce

Best regards Bob Murdoch
Quite a rare beast then. I'd like to know who does the relic'ing....

Well I've had a reply from Bob already - here's what he says: we make the relics from LS85F base with Trev Wilkinson Gotoh pickups the relic process takes 2 months to complete and each one is done by hand so each one is an individual piece hope this helps Best regards Bob Murdoch I've asked him if h...

Hi Chris - I thought you might chip in, and yes it is I :wink: The guitar should arrive today and I believe the pickups are Tokai PAF IIs. From what I can gather, they're a regular LS150 that was custom ordered to be relic'd at the factory. However, the guy at Coda I spoke to thought they were LS85F...

Thanks JJ. I know they only made 12 of the Retrospec models, but this one is last year's relic with the UK headstock. Did they only make 12 of those too???

I have an Epiphone 330 (Korean) and it's a great guitar. You so have to shop around to find a good one though as I played some dogs before I got mine...

Anyone else got an LS-150 relic from Coda?

I've just grabbed this beauty from Coda today - a used example of their relic run from last year - for just over ?500 with a hard case and delivery. A pretty good price I think, considering they were ?1000 new. Anyone else on here got one? How do you find it? Do you know how many were produced? http...

Thanks for that. It's stable in that it's not getting worse, so I think I'll leave it for now. I'll worry about it if and when it's a problem!

I got the guitar from a UK website by mail order. I saw a few pics and took a gamble on liking it- which I do! The photo I posted is very flattering, mine is actually in much more relic'd condition than yours! The wood around the neck joint has shrunk slightly over the years and all the finish is cr...

There was also Pearl (as in the drumkit manufacturer). Here's my early 70s Matsumoku made Les Paul Custom copy:

I've seen that one too ;)

It's an Orville (not ObG).

It's a photo flame top.

It's a 1995 model.

It's overpriced.
