Fender Custom Shop 1951 Nocaster Relic Ready -SOLD-


No-Nonsense Nocasters
In 1951, Leo Fender changed the world of music forever by introducing the first-ever mass-produced solidbody electric guitar. Leo was going to call it the Broadcaster, but the threat of a lawsuit from Gretsch (who produced a drum set called the Broadkaster) forced him to abandon that plan. Ever the resourceful (and frugal) businessman, Leo simply snipped the word “Broadcaster” off the headstock decal and shipped his nameless guitars out. Since the guitars had no model name, musicians dubbed them “Nocasters.”

Because of their incredible rarity, original Nocasters have become some of the most desirable vintage pieces out there. So, we decided to team up with our friends at the Fender Custom Shop and issue a Wildwood 10 version that marries the vibe of the originals with modern ergonomics. The Wildwood-exclusive 10″ radius and 6105 frets are a perfect pairing with the ’60 Oval C profile, and the Custom Shop hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups deliver spectacular sounds. We’re sure you’ll find a Nocaster here that will grab you by your heartstrings, so we invite you to browse away–just make sure your keyboard drool shield is in place!
