The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things, and with the Custom Shop '51 Heavy Relic Nocaster they hark right back to the early days of Leo Fenders vision. We love it when brands put out high spec models for our left handed friends and this one is definitely worth a look!
With the appearance of a vintage guitar this Custom Shop model benefits from all the playability and reliability of a brand new one. A lightweight Ash body is finished in a classic Nocaster Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer, period correct, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other finishes.
A plain grain Maple neck is also finished in nitro lacquer for a smooth, authentic, vintage feel. With a 9.50" radius, medium jumbo frets and a Nocaster 'U' profile, it's as close to the real thing as possible.
With the Telecaster design considered by many to be the original workhorse guitar, the Custom Shop '51 Nocaster needs a pickup pairing that can deliver the classic Tele' twang. With a Broadcaster at the bridge and a Twisted Tele at the neck, it boasts a versatile and well balanced selection.
The original '51 Nocaster's are the stuff of legend, a real collector's piece. The Custom Shop '51, well that's a player's guitar!View Full Specs
