Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Aged Nocaster Blonde
Fender Custom Shop guitars represent the pinnacle of Fender's prestigious range. These guitars are hand-crafted by an elite team of luthiers, hand-selected and trained by the best of the best.
1951 was an iconic year for the Telecaster. After a rocky start with a single pickup version without a truss rod, and a false start with a production model bearing a name that infringed a trade mark, the Fender Telecaster was finally released in the last half of '51 to widespread acclaim.
Featuring a single cutaway ash body, maple neck, two single coil pickups and fat '50s wiring, this guitar represents the beginning of what would go on to become a cultural phenomenon. Don't miss this very limited model!
