inc. VAT ex. VAT


Overview by GAK

This stunning Nocaster has been created by the master luthiers at the Fender Custom Shop. Featuring a vintage-correct spec and built with the finest tonewoods, you’ll swear this Nocaster has travelled through time! If you’re hankering for a vintage Nocaster, this one is a more than worthy choice at a fraction of the cost.

Vintage Feel & Sound

Using the highly sought-after 1951 Nocaster as its base, this guitar has an authentic vintage character. Providing the old-school playing experience is the 1-piece Quarter Sawn Maple neck, which features a Nocaster U profile. This comfortable, substantial shape feels great in the hand and adds a thickness to the tone. The narrow tall 6105 frets enhance the vintage vibe and make expressive bending a breeze.

The Ash body is beautifully resonant across the tonal spectrum, with a bold presence that promotes note articulation. It’s coated in a nitrocellulose finish which emphasises the gorgeous wood grain and boosts sustain by allowing the guitar to “breathe”.

New Old Stock

This Nocaster is part of the Custom Shop’s Time Machine series and has been given the New Old Stock (NOS) treatment. It’s as if this Nocaster were perfectly preserved and untouched since 1951.

Classic Nocaster Tone

Equipped with a pair of handwound Loaded 51 Nocaster pickups, this guitar has the sweet chime and potent twang that you’d expect from a guitar with this pedigree. The neck pickup has a rich warmth that compliments the powerful bite of the bridge. Once you’ve experienced this Nocaster’s incredible sound, you’ll understand why it’s known as the original workhorse guitar.

Modern Reliability

Unlike a guitar made in the '50s, this Custom Shop Nocaster is as rock-solid and reliable as a modern instrument whilst retaining its pure vintage quality. It’s an ideal choice if you need an authentically old-school sound that you can count on for your performance or recording session.

The Fender Nocaster is easily one of the most desirable and prized instruments in their storied history. With this guitar, the Custom Shop have crafted a remarkable instrument that is as close to an actual '51 Nocaster as you can get.
