This insanely nice Kyle McMillin Ash body Fender Broadcaster is one of only seventy Master Built versions ever produced. Designed to celebrate this historically most important guitar, in many ways this is a Custom Shop Master Built re production of the one that started it all. Launching Leo's company on the trajectory to stardom and world domination, this Journeyman Relic finished Custom Shop 70th Broadcaster comes bursting with period correct DNA and a few player orientated tweaks. Small run limited edition CS Fender builds attract a lot of attention and its hard to think of a recent small production run of master Built guitar that can hit the spot quite as much as this Broadcaster. This guitar is sure to receive a lot of attention from collectors as well as players looking for an ultimate original character early Fender.
We are especially impressed with the attention to detail this Kyle McMillin Master Built guitar offers and feel its a noticeable step up from the standard CS versions on offer. The fret work and relic finish is exquisitely good, and in action this guitar provides an effortless upscale feel and wonderful classic tones. AA Flame Maple neck with

Fender changed the music world forever in October 1950 with the first dual-pickup electric Spanish guitar—the Broadcaster. Revolutionary as it was, however, the Broadcaster was short lived—produced only for a couple months until January 1951 because of an already-existing trademark on the name held by the Gretsch guitar company.
