You are looking at a 2019 Fender Nocaster 1951 Custom Shop Lush Closet Classic with a Nocaster Blonde finish, with tinted maple neck & fretboard and hand-wound loaded 51 Nocaster pickups! Very cool stuff here! This one also comes from Fender with modern specs, so you’ve got the 9.5” fretboard radius and a neck pickup that's actually useful! LOL.. If you’ve ever played a vintage spec Nocaster you probably know the neck pickup is muffled and not much use… This one is modern wired, so the tone is crazy cool here! The guitar is 100% original and ready to rock your world!

She was born in June of 2019 and is in perfect unplayed condition with no actual play wear to report. This is a Closet Classic, so the finish checking and light wear was done intentionally and artfully by Fender. The neck is straight, with no cracks or repairs... the frets are perfect, with their entire life ahead of them... and the sound is sweet! Also included is the original tweed Fender Custom Shop hard shell case, and even includes all of the case candy, including the leather strap, the ash tray bridge cover, and the leather portfolio which houses the custom shop floor traveler and certificate, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
