Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster (2005)


Looking to add a Telecaster to your collection? Love fat neck carves? Old school "blackguard" looks on your list? This gently used, 2005 Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster should be on your list.

A reproduction of the legendary "Nocaster" guitars that were made for a brief period in 1951 without a name on the headstock due to a lawsuit with the Grestch company over the use of the Broadcaster name (what the Tele was originally named and what the Grestch company was already using for a line of drums - "Broadkaster"), this guitar sports a comfortable 1" U-shaped neck carve which sets it apart from other Telecaster models.

All the Tele twang you could ever want is here, and like all great Teles, it excels at any style you throw at it (save maybe metal). There are some very slight signs of wear - pick marks on the guard and the faintest fret wear just starting to make itself known (super, super faint) - otherwise, this guitar is in excellent, condition (this is a factory relic, btw. The relic'ing is very subtle).

Simply a great, no excuses Tele here folks! Priced with hardshell case.
