Faded Nocaster Blonde Maple Neck
The “Nocaster” legend
Bearing the revered “Nocaster” moniker, the Time Machine 1951 Nocaster springs from a most interesting lineage. As we know, our beloved Telecaster was originally christened the “Broadcaster.” At the time, Gretsch had a drum set named “Broadkaster,” and threatened a legal action against Fender to protect the name. Wanting no part of this, Fender simply cut off the headstock decals to simply read “Fender.” Thus, the Nocaster legend was born — affecting only about 475 instruments before Fender came up with the Telecaster name. So Nocasters are rare, indeed — which all the more makes the 1951 Nocaster a 6-string object of desire.
Hand-wound single-coil pickups dish out classic Tele tones
You’re sure to cut through the mix, thanks to the Time Machine 1951 Nocaster’s loaded ’51 Nocaster pickups. These pups feature a period-correct design and exhibit the tight low end and clear, balanced midrange you’d expect from a vintage ’50s Tele. And the bridge pickups twangs like it’s nobody’s business. Both of these single-coil pickups have been hand-wound to ensure the highest quality possible. The 1951 Nocaster comes complete with a 3-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring.
Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability
The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender Custom Shop Time Machine 1951 Nocaster features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks and less likely to warp, twist, or shrink. The guitarists here at Sweetwater also love the feel of the 1951 Nocaster’s 10/56 “V” profile and easy-playing 9.5″ radius fingerboard.
The Closet Classic treatment offers real-deal visuals
Fender Custom Shop’s Closet Classic treatment creates instruments that are spittin’ images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamp, you’d be hard-pressed to distinguish this guitar from an original, lovingly-cared-for ’51 Nocaster. The Time Machine 1951 Nocaster wears a gently aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today’s polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to “breathe.” Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, they also enhance the instrument’s tonal qualities, giving you the look, sound, and feel of an aged classic.
