In the fall of 1950, the world of guitar and popular music changed forever with the introduction of the Broadcaster®, Fender’s first solid body electric guitar with a truss rod and two pickups. A few short months later, a telegram from Gretsch®, owner of the BroadKaster® trademark, ended Fender’s use of the name. For a short time, the word "Broadcaster" was simply clipped off the headstock decal - these guitars are known as "Nocaster®s." Thereafter, this revolutionary guitar was dubbed the Telecaster®. Original Broadcaster models, of which only 250 are thought to have been produced, have become highly collectible.
The Fender® 70th Anniversary Broadcaster celebrates the remarkable origins of one of Fender’s most iconic models. Features include an ash body with Blackguard Blonde lacquer finish, period-correct black phenolic pickguard, thick "U"-shaped neck, Custom Shop-designed '50-'51 Blackguard pickups, special anniversary neck plate, embroidered case and a custom COA. The controls are wired for standard Telecaster operation, while an optional original Broadcaster wiring kit, included in the case, can be installed to replicate the unique "blend" circuit used in original Broadcasters. Production of the 70th Anniversary Broadcaster will be limited to 2020 only.
Guitar is Used but in excellent condition. No visible scratches or marks.
Often copied, but never surpassed, the Stratocaster is arguably the world's most-loved electric guitar. Electrifying the music world since its release in 1954, its natural, versatile sound made the Stratocaster the benchmark for exceptional guitar tones. The American Professional Stratocaster HSS ShawBucker isn't a re-imagining of the classic design; it's the authentic original model, evolved.

From the Fender Custom Shop comes this Vintge Custom '55 Stratocaster in wide fade two-tone sunburst. The Vintage Custom series styles new instruments off of their respective earliest periods of production - some based off jurassic, prototypical designs. On this particular guitar, we see a wide fade two tone sunburst finish, which is rarely seen on a '50s Stratocaster. For the neck, this Strat sports a 1954 U-shape neck - a profile often seen on early Telecasters.
Plugged in, this Custom Shop Strat is bright and articulate, much like a legit '50s design would be. Key features include a two piece ash body, gloss back maple neck, and a 7.25-9.5" compound radius fingerboard - which, according to Fender, has been discovered on original Stratocasters, though very seldom. Electronically, the handwired bridge pickup is wide open, and middle and neck pickups each have their own tone control. Rounding out this guitar are Closet Classic hardware, non-aged plastic material, and Jescar FW50085 medium vintage frets.
Stand out from the crowd with the Limited Edition Fender Custom Shop Heavy Relic Strat, a throwback to one of the most exciting times of Stratocaster development. ’59 saw the debut of the rosewood fingerboard, bringing a new look and sound to the Strat®. The two-piece,nitro-finished alder body’s Heavy Relic treatment, roasted neck, gold anodized pickguard and Texas Special® pickups make this guitar bad, baby, bad—especially when it comes to its looks and sound.
Other features include a lacquer-finished quartersawn roasted maple neck with “ ’59 C”-shaped profile, 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard, 6100 jumbo frets and Vintage Modified #2 wiring. Easy playability, tonal versatility and nostalgic, gorgeous looks make it a want for every player, and a must for every collector. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
The birth of an era. The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Relic Stratocaster takes players back to the roots of rock 'n' roll. Hendrix. Pete Townshend. George Harrison. All notable Strat users of the famed '60s era. And now, with the release of this Custom Shop model, it's time to let your creativity flourish in true vintage style.
Loaded with a trio of hand-wound Texas Special pickups, the Custom Shop Strat unleashes the iconic single-coil tones that set the foundation for rock 'n' roll as we know it. Every aspect of its design breathes '60s Fender. From the laminated rosewood fretboard, to the Oval "C" shaped neck - the Custom Shop Strat is crafted for superb playability and distinctive Fender feel. Topped off with a synchronized tremolo bridge and characterful relic finish, the 1960 Stratocaster gives players all the '60s flair in a design built for the modern stage.
Three is a magic number. The trio of Custom Shop hand-wound Texas Special single-coil pickups on this guitar will make your riffs soar. They're hot and fiery – but also offer a bit of vintage twang. And their higher output means you get the hugest tone you've ever heard. The bridge position pickup is powerful and punchy – perfect for those crunchy, aggressive rhythm chops and sharp lead.
The neck pickup is creamy and fat, helping your notes reach their full potential. It'll send waves of energy through your licks and inject them with emotion. Your blues bends will have a resounding voice with tonnes of sustain. Then there's the middle pickup, which is twangy and vibrant, offering the perfect tonal balance between the neck and bridge pickups. You'll be able to handle any style with these powerful pickups at your disposal.
It's not enough to just sound '60s. It has to feel '60s, too. Luckily, Fender have ensured that every aspect of the 1960 Custom Shop Strat has the unique, vintage feel that guitarists crave in a Custom Shop model. A lightweight alder body lets players roam free on stage, along with a dual-cutaway design for effortless access to the upper frets. Fender know better than anyone that a guitar should enhance creativity. And this Custom Shop model is certainly no exception.
It's not just the body, though. A 1960 Oval "C" shaped neck fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, whilst providing authentic feel through its entirety. What's more – it's layered with a laminated rosewood fretboard. So, your hands can soar across every inch of the guitar's fingerboard and perform every riff, chord, and solo with ultimate precision. It's almost addictive to play.
What makes a Fender Custom Shop guitar so special? There's an endless list of answers. But one of the most recognised features is the relic finishes. The 1960 Stratocaster features a Relic finish for that sought-after worn guitar look. Giving your guitar more character and personal style, the relic design simply demands audience attention. So you can be sure that every time you step on stage, it's all eyes on you. Everyone knows that a Fender Custom Shop is a rarity. And with the classic Shell Pink paintwork to top it off, it can be yours to showcase on stage.
It doesn't get more creative than using a whammy bar in performance. Hendrix used one in his Woodstock performance. Jeff Beck made it his own. And now, you can inject your performance with your own creative flair. Whether you're unleashing screeching dive bombs, giving your solo that extra kick, or simply decorating your chords with some elegant shimmer – the famed Strat tremolo system gives players an even bigger platform to experiment their sound with. A Strat wouldn't be a Strat without it. So it goes without saying that the '60 Custom Shop features the iconic tremolo bridge design, for even more possibilities in your sound.
An instrument of such individuality needs protecting. Which is why the Fender 1960 Stratocaster comes with a brown hardshell case. Take your cherished instrument on the road, with the peace of mind that it’ll be in pristine condition every time you play. Preventing scratching, scraping, or any other damage to your guitar - the deluxe hardshell case makes transporting between venues simple and stress-free. No worries. No panic. Just the excitement of performance, the way it should be.
For guitarists everywhere who appreciate great style, versatile tone with more power, and excellent value, the Standard Stratocaster HSS is an elegant and affordable classic with a great combination of traditional design and contemporary features, including a huge-sounding humbucking bridge pickup.

This limited-edition 60th Anniversary model celebrates the iconic 1960 Les Paul Standard, which has shaped music across genres for six decades. The artisans at Gibson Custom Shop have proudly recreated the experience of owning a priceless original thanks to painstaking attention to detail and tireless study of vintage examples, closely following the three distinct versions seen within 1960. Those made in the first third of the year (V1) had the same specs as 1959 models, while the middle third (V2) had thinner neck profiles, different knobs and brighter colors. The final third (V3) featured even thinner neck profiles. Each version is available within this historic limited run of instruments, inspiring players in different ways. Included is a 60th Anniversary switch plate, a commemorative Certificate of Authenticity booklet and a vintage replica hardshell case.
The standard for simplicity & functionality
The ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge was the brainchild of legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty in 1954, setting a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. The ABR-1 is slotted directly into the body of the guitar using a separate stud and thumbwheel, providing a firm seating for the strings and allowing players the ability to adjust and fine tune intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields a great union between the strings and body, which results in excellent vintage tone and sustain.
