New Fender Custom Shop 70th Anniversary Broadcaster Heavy Relic


In stock

2-piece ash body in Nocaster Blonde, Heavy Relic aging, nice and light at 7.2 pounds overall, lovely mineral streaking, rift-sawn maple neck with “1950 Blackguard” profile which is a nice big “U” with a faint hint of “V”, compound radius from 7.25″ to 9.50″, 1 & 5/8″ nut width, medium vintage fret wire, a matched set of hand-wound aged ’50-’51 Blackguard pickups, ’51-modded Nocaster wiring, black pickguard (not a surprise, really), Fender-logo vintage-style tuners, vintage-style railed bridge with 3 brass saddles, commemorative neck plate, and of course the super-cool “Broadcaster” decal that after 7 decades Fender can finally use. We thought we’d seen the last of these but this last one (we ordered it in December of 2020) has arrived and it’s a fantastic guitar by any standard. Comes in deluxe center-pocket red poodle tweed case with papers, accessories, bridge cover, COA, and floor traveler, made in Corona, California, USA, limited lifetime warranty.
