In February of 1951, Fender received a telegram from The Gretsch Company informing them of a trademark infringement on their model name Broadcaster, as Gretsch was manufacturing a line of drums under the very similar “Broadkaster” name. Not wanting to waste any materials, Leo Fender simply had his employees cut “Broadcaster” from the decal, producing guitars that had only the word “Fender” on the headstock. This “no-model” transitional guitar has become known to collectors and aficionados as the Nocaster.
This is an incredible Tele with excellent playability, a great sounding set of pickups, and a cool vintage vibe.
It sports Fender's reknowned "Relic" finish, which accurately simulates the aesthetic of many years of wear and tear with dings, scratches and fingermarks.
