1951 Fender Nocaster – Blond
We present an all original and 100% complete 1951 Fender Nocaster in Blond – Blackguard. Made in Fullerton, california.
This incredible 1951 Fender Nocaster has a solid ash body and a wonderful profile fretted maple neck with 21 frets and black dot position markers. Single “round” string tree. Original Individual “no-name” Kluson Deluxe tuners with oval metal buttons and slot-head screws.
The tuning keys are stamped “2356766/PAT. APPLD” on the bottom base on the plain metal-cover “black-bottom” pickup with slot-head adjusting screws with an one black six-polepiece “copper-coated metal plate bottom” pickup with flush polepieces Single-ply black Bakelite pickguard with slot-head screws. Two controls (one volume, one blender) plus three-way “tone” switch with slot-head screws and original “patent number” black plastic “barrel-like” tip, all on metal plate adjoining pickguard. Shorter chrome knobs with more pronounced domes and heavy knurled sides. This Fender Nocaster combined bridge/tailpiece with three brass saddles and slot-head intonation adjustment screws. Serial number on the bridge plate beneath the words “FENDER/PAT. PEND.”
The solder joints are covering the stamping on the both of the potentiometers, but nothing has ever been touched in this guitar. Overall, this historical piece is in excellent condition with minor nicks, dings, belt buckle wear on the back, finish checking and other cosmetic play wear. The original Butterscotch Blond finish is a stunning / creamy color. The lovely grain of the ash body shows very well through the Blond finish on this 72th years old Fender Nocaster. The original frets and nut has plenty of life left and the neck is worn and incredible to play.
Pickups and the electronics wiring remain untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickups. All original and correct.
Even comes with its original “thermometer” case with chocolate brown plush lining. Latches and handle are in perfect working order. There is written a name on the case. Maybe the original owner, maybe not but it’s super cool piece of history. Complete with its original “ashtray” bridge cover.
