This serial number R112423 version guitar weights 7lbs 10.5oz and has been skilfully recreated to emulate the Fender Broadcasters core DNA, but it keeps the modern players demand for specifications and constancy in mind. These Broadcasters were only available for us to order from the Custom Shop for a short time. As you would expect from a Custom Shop level of build these 70th Anniversary models will inspire and excite any player who admires and understands just how significant the original model was.

In its day the Broadcaster enjoyed only a very short-lived production until January 1951 because of an already-existing trademark on the name held by the Fred Gretsch Manufacturing Company, Inc. Now, for 2020 alone, the Custom Shop has resurrected this famously rare guitar in honor of its 70th anniversary. The Limited Edition 70th Anniversary Broadcaster has a two-piece select ash body with off-center seam, available in four different Custom Shop aging packages—NOS Time Capsule, Journeyman Relic®, Relic and Heavy Relic—all finished in the original “flash coat” lacquer. The one-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a 1950 Broadcaster profile, 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound-radius fingerboard and 21 medium vintage frets. Other features include hand-wound ’50-’51 Blackguard pickups with ’51 modded “Nocaster” wiring
