Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Broadcaster

In the fall of 1950, the world of guitar and popular music changed forever with the introduction of the Broadcaster, Fender’s first solid body electric guitar with a truss rod and two pickups. A few short months later, a telegram from Gretsch, owner of the BroadKaster trademark, ended Fender’s use of the name. For a short time, the word "Broadcaster" was simply clipped off the headstock decal - these guitars are known as "Nocaster's." Thereafter, this revolutionary guitar was dubbed the Telecaster. Original Broadcaster models, of which only 250 are thought to have been produced, have become highly collectible.

The Fender Custom Shop celebrates the remarkable origins of one of Fender’s most iconic models with the Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Broadcaster. Features include an 2pc ash body with Faded Nocaster Blonde finish, period-correct black phenolic pickguard, thick "U"-shaped neck, Custom Shop hand-wound '51 Nocaster pickups, special anniversary neck plate. The controls are wired to replicate the unique "blend" circuit used in original Broadcasters but another assembly with fat 50's wiring is included in the case.

A Fender Custom Shop instrument is extraordinary. You know it when you play one—it’s definitely more than the sum of its parts. It’s filled with intangible, electrifying elements that add a new dimension to your playing experience. It’s as if the instrument itself is imbued with history, alive with the spirit of the place where it was built and the devotion of those who crafted it.

The Custom Shop is home to Fender’s most skilled and talented builders. It’s a bustling, noisy and creatively volcanic place that re-earns its nickname—the Dream Factory—every day. Custom Shop builders are completely dedicated to their art—part craftsman, part artist, part music fan and, more often than not, part mad scientist. They’re the best at what they do, and they pour all of their passion, hard-earned knowledge and skill into every instrument they build. It’s no ordinary place, and the creations that come from it are no ordinary instruments. This is Fender Custom Shop.
