Well, these arent really the 'distressed' models. You have to check these out, in person, theyre kinda cool and come in colors, too. the grain is sandblasted to create a grain-textured finish.
I remember every little thing...as if it happened only yesterday. I was barely seventeen, and I once killed a boy with a Fender guitar. I don't remember if it was a telecaster or a stratocaster, But I do remember that it had a heart of chrome and a voice like a horny angel.

I do see sandblasting the finish like that as slightly different from the 'relic' look. Still, I prefer a gloss finish as it shows off the woodgrain better.
I never had interest in seeing a perfectly good new guitar get beaten up in an effort to emulate honest wear from a real player over many years. Fortunately (!!??) I am old enough to have guitars that do have honest wear from my own and prior owners' gentle handling and playing, and even some finish checking. No road wear - they are in far better shape than artificial 'relics' - but at least it is honest.
I spoke to a guy who even refuses to clean out the dirt from people's fingers on the textured control knobs. Ew.
