Minty 2022 Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster in a gorgeous NOS Tobacco Sunburst Finish / Blackguard. Beautifully carved "10/56" V Flamed Maple Neck. Some interesting figuring along the lower and upper forearm bout (see pics). Very lightweight at 7 LBS according to my digital household scale. The finish is really nice on this in that under room light, it has a darker hue to the overall sunburst, but when you bring it into sunlight, it takes on more of a vibrant cherry burst. The first set of photos with the grey background is under room light and the others were taken outside in very bright sunlight. 

Please See the photo of the Shop Floor Traveler for full specs.

Played just for about 20 minutes total. Super clean, basically as new. If you were to inspect the body under optimal light at just the right angle, you can barely detect some ultra-faint swirl marks, but so faint are they that I could not even capture them in a photo. All factory original with original Custom Shop logo embroidered hard case, all case candy, and documentation. Comes factory wired so the middle position for the Bridge + Neck pickup is out of phase which has a really quacky tone akin to the sound you get from a half-cocked Wah pedal, nasal tone (you can always re-wire it to the more standard Bridge + Neck tone should you desire).

This has the original blackguard on it, but I'm also including a set of 4 extra, brand new pickguards (Parchment, Mint Green, Creme, and Tortoise, all with the plastic still on them) should you choose to swap them. Check out the last two sets of collage pictures where I've just placed the different colored pickguards over the original black one. One collage was taken inside normal room light and the other collage was taken under direct sunlight. You can see how the different pick guards radically alter the overall look. 

I do not ship Internationally. Please feel free to ask any questions or shoot me an offer. Thanks for looking.
