The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Fender Custom Shop 51 Nocaster Relic DISCONTINUED

NOTE: This instrument has been discontinued and is no longer available from Fender. This post remains for historical purposes only.

This faithful recreation of a Fender classic features an ash body, U-shaped maple neck, single-ply black pickguard and original spec pickups. The Nocaster is painstakingly recreated right down to the finest detail, including the paint “halo” beneath the pickguard. The instrument has been given Fender’s “Relic” treatment to show years of natural wear and tear—nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts.
