20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster, Maple Fingerboard, Nocaster Blonde
The year 1995 was a landmark in the history of the Fender Custom Shop - the year it introduced the world to Relic guitars. By offering authentic tone and broken-in feel of the original '50s models without requiring decades of use, the introduction blindsided the industry. Ingeniously "reliced" by the Custom Shop and limited to a run of 95 units (a tribute to the year they were released), the Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster honors the evolution of relicing and the Custom Shop's mastery of the art.
Each guitar tells an individual story, favored elements such as smooth-feeling Heavy Relic necks with the slightest hints of finish on the back and worn fingerboards reflect a player's unique touch. The highly resonant thin-coated Relic body appears to bear the "battle scars" from countless gigs, echoing innumerable hours of strumming and picking. Full of authentic Fender sound, the thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows the body to "breathe" with unrestrained resonance. With a warm-sounding brass 3-saddle bridge and meticulously hand wound Alnico 5 pickups with fiber bobbins and vintage-accurate Formvar wiring, the Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster twangs, whispers and growls with aplomb.
