Fender CS Stratocaster 59 Journeyman Relic Black

Electric Guitar / Custom Shop
When Leo Fender developed the prototype of all board guitars in 1950, he had a vision. He wanted to provide the string guild with an instrument whose volume knew hardly any limits thanks to electrical amplification, and which was also resistant to feedback. After all, at that time guitarists usually had to assert themselves against noisy wind players and drummers.
Television was the technology of the future. After some back and forth from Esquiere to Broadcaster and Nocaster, Fender was inspired by this and came up with the appropriate model name "Telecaster". And as history has proven, the Californian hit the bull's eye in terms of zeitgeist. The Tele is still one of the most played, most cult and most appreciated instruments in popular music.
The '51 Nocaster is a replica of the first Telecaster in a Super Heavy Relic version. The body is made of ash, as it was back then, and in combination with a maple neck it produces the typical Tele twang that purists like. Hand-wound 50/51 Blackguards are used for the sound. The circuit deviates from the usual. It is equipped with a modified Nocaster wiring. The usual tone potentiometer functions here in the first position as a blend control.
Once again, the manufacturer has succeeded in presenting us with the 51 Limited Edition, a magnificent piece of contemporary history.
