An amazing player’s grade Nocaster! Leo Fender introduced his first dual-pickup, solid body electric guitar under the Broadcaster name in 1950, but was soon issued a cease and desist letter by the Fred Gretsch Co. who had already registered the “Broadkaster” name for their line of drums. During the dispute Leo simply cut the Broadcaster name off of the headstock decals, leaving us with this short period of guitars now dubbed the “Nocaster” before eventually renaming the instrument as the Telecaster with new decals in late-1951. This “player’s” Nocaster has an old Blonde refin, re-fretted and refinished neck, replaced pickguard, non-original vintage Kluson “double-line” tuners, replaced pickups and modern wiring. Feels great in the hands and an excellent player with a chunkier C-profile neck. The bridge pickup delivers a punchy snap, while the neck pickup is warm and open providing a wide range of classic Fender tones. A fantastic early solid-body Fender! Includes hardshell case.
