Guitar Of The Week:Fender Custom Shop - Limited 60th Anniversary Broadcaster!

Guitar Of The Week - Musician's Friend Private Reserve

Only 60 Units Worldwide!

This fine instrument is a reproduction of one of the most  collectible guitars ever made. Vintage experts estimate that less than  200 were made before the Gretsch company sent a telegram asking Fender  to change the name because Gretsch owned the name "Broadkaster" in early  1951. This is the first time the Broadcaster has been reproduced with  the original logo since then.

The LTD Limited Broadcaster 2-pickup model features a premium ash  body with the Custom Shop Relic finish treatment, 1-piece maple neck,  25.5" scale length, and a 21-fret maple fretboard. A Flat Pole  Broadcaster single-coil pickup in the bridge position gives that famous  bright, yet rich sound, and the Vintage '50s single-coil pickup in the  neck position adds a lot of versatility and allows the player a wide  variety of tones for any style of music. Chrome hardware includes a  vintage-style bridge with 3 vintage saddles and vintage-style tuning  machines.

Includes: limited-edition hardshell case, limited-edition  certificate of authenticity, strap, cable, custom care kit, and  paperwork. Only 60 of these made—don't miss your chance to own this  legendary model.
