Timeless looks and sound with this '50s Double Esquire!

There are few guitars that capture the imagination as much as Telecasters from the 1950s. This '51 Nocaster from the Fender Custom in Heavy Relic is a great example of this; this guitar is just right! With its ash body and rift-sawn maple neck, the sound is immediately recognizable and nice and twangy, even without plugging in. This unmistakable character also remains beautifully plugged in, thanks to the hand-wound Blackguard Pickups and the 50's style Telecaster bridge. The 1950 Blackguard neck profile is nice and chunky but has a modern twist: thanks to the compound radius, this Custom Shop plays smoothly everywhere on the neck. Comes with Deluxe Hardshell Case.
