This Custom Shop Special Edition has the look and feel of a true vintage instrument.
The Fender Custom Shop Ltd. Nocaster Heavy Relic is an electric guitar that faithfully recreates a Fender classic. Includes a lightweight ash body, U-shaped maple neck, single-ply black pickguard and original spec pickups. The Nocaster is painstakingly recreated right down to the tiniest detail, including the paint "halo" beneath the pickguard.
The Nocaster guitar has been given Fender's "Heavy Relic" treatment to simulate years of natural wear and tear with nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware, and aged plastic parts.
