Fender Broadcaster® 70th Anniversary Blonde 2020

Fender Broadcaster® 70th Anniversary Blonde 2020

The new, limited edition Fender Broadcaster® 70th Anniversary recreates an historic instrument, one of the very first successful solidbody electric guitars. The first Fender Broadcaster® was built for less than a year, from mid 1950 to early 1951, in a quantity of perhaps 250. At that point, the Gretsch company filed a copyright claim to protect their Broadkaster drum line. For immediate response Fender simply cut the word ‘Broadcaster’ from the decal, and these models are known as ‘NoCasters’. For the latter part of 1951, once the modified ‘NoCaster’ decals were used up, new ‘Telecaster’ decals started to appear.

Fender American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Custom Reissue Sunburst, 2012

Fender American Vintage '72 Telecaster Custom Reissue Sunburst, 2012

The Fender American Vintage 72 Telecaster recreates a version of the Telecaster built from 1972 to 1981, a major change from the Tele Custom introduced in 1959. For 1959 with the introduction of Rosewood fingerboards, Fender introduced an ‘upmarket’ Telecaster Custom, with the new Rosewood board and a body with binding around the top and back. The rest of the guitar was standard Telecaster. However, by 1972, Fender Marketing was feeling pressured because of its close association with thin and bright single coil pickups, while Gibson was almost synonymous with fat sounding humbuckers.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster Trans Red with Maple Neck, built during the CBS in Fullerton, California, in good clean condition and a fairly rare colour. If you count the Broadcaster/Telecaster and Esquire as one basic design and the revolutionary 1952 Precision Bass as another, the Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third complete Spanish style guitar design, though he also built a number of Hawaiian or Steel guitar models. Immediately successful, the Strat has stayed in production since its 1954 introduction.

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Here’s a rarity and bit of history – a Music Man Sabre Bass, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California by CLF Research for Music Man. CLF stood for Clarence Leo Fender. Music Man was founded in 1974 and in 1975, Leo Fender’s non-compete agreement lapsed and he became president of Music Man. Until 1979, Music Man guitars and basses were built by Leo’s other company, CLF Research. After 1979 and until Music Man folded in 1984, Grover Jackson built the bodies and necks and assembled the instruments.
