Now found few and far between, these "Nocasters" were produced by Fender during a transition period in 1951. Originally released under the name "Broadcaster," their first introduction was short-lived before a nearly missed lawsuit, and consequently, Fender's dual-pickup solid body was quickly renamed the Telecaster. However, during this transition, some guitars left the factory without a model name on the headstock at all - hence the term "No-Caster." This particular example is not only an incredible instrument on its own, but a unique piece of history from the early beginnings of a classic. This guitar's body was refinished a long time ago and the neck was oversprayed at the same time. Both feel great and nicely broken in. The neck is comfortable to play with only light fret wear that doesn't effect playability. The only other thing to note is that there are a few small pieces of electrical tape on the pickguard covering some pickguard cracks. This is a fine guitar and absolutely lives up to the Golden Era reputation. Includes it's original hard shell case
