There's not much in this world with more mojo than an original Broadcaster - but opportunities to play one are few and far between, and opportunities to own one are even fewer - and pricey. So in order to celebrate the 70th birthday of the guitar that changed the world, the Fender Custom Shop has released a stunning recreation of the '50s legend...and at a price that won't put you in debt for the rest of your life. This Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Broadcaster features a super chunky '50s "U" shaped neck, with a compound radius fingerboard for vintage feel at the lower frets and modern playability at the high end. A pair of Custom Shop Hand-wound '50-'51 Blackguard Single-coil are truly everything you need tone-wise - and the relic'd Aged Nocaster Blonde finish is the cherry on top of this incredible '50s replica.
Note: Because wood is an organic material, slight variations in the grain occur naturally and add to the uniqueness of each guitar. Because of these natural variations, the grain of the instrument you receive might not perfectly match the one pictured here.
