Fender Custom Shop Nocaster 1951 Heavy Relic Nocaster Blonde


The Fender Nocaster – the first and only Fender guitar that had no model name on the headstock except for the Fender logo. How did that happen? When Leo Fender introduced the Broadcaster in 1951, there was a lawsuit brought by the Gretsch Company, which already sold a drum set called "Broadkaster". Leo didn't think long, just cut the name "Broadcaster" out of the water decal and sold the guitar without a model name. A little later, this guitar would become the now legendary Fender Telecaster.

This very special version of the Nocaster is equipped with a 12 "fingerboard radius, which is significantly flatter than a 9.5" radius. In addition, instead of the "baseball bat" U-style neck that was common at the time, a modern V-style neck is used as well as modern 6105 frets instead of the medium jumbo frets. All of this is very useful for Tele-players who love fast solos, shimmering vibratos and extensive bendings.

This beautiful Nocaster model from the Fender Custom Shop has an absolutely authentic relic aging. This is exactly how a guitar would look like that has had almost 70 years in use. Wow! Right from the first contact, the Nocaster simply "feels" really good – pleasantly light, with a great attack and incredibly resonant. Twang as Twang can be! Once you've played it, you will love it!

Conclusion: This Nocaster model from the Fender Custom Shop is perfect for Tele fans who like the mojo of an old Tele, but like to have modern features on board. For die-hard vintage fans there is an alternative in our shop, a Heavy Relic Nocaster, which has all the classic specifications of the 1951 original. Just have a look!
