1951 Nocaster Custom Built 2018 Collection
Before the famous Telecaster model was given her current name, she was called the Broadcaster. But after a lawsuit with Gretsch, who already had a product called the Broadkaster, Fender had to change the guitar's name. For a short period of time the Telecasters were produced without having a name, they didn't even have a model-name on the headstock! Thus, these instruments were called; Nocasters.
This one is a tribute to those Nocasters from the 50's. She has a 2-piece select ash body, 1-piece quartersawn AA flame maple neck with 10/56 "V" backshape, 9.5" fingerboard radius, 21 6105 frets, hand-wound loaded nocaster pickups, 3-way switch, fat 50s tele wiring, black phenolic pickguard, '51-'54 bridge with brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines with fender logo, bone nut, disk string tree and she comes with a certificate of authenticity and a deluxe hardshell case.
