If your looking for an incredible reproduction of one of the most iconic guitars of all time, Fender Custom Shop has you covered with this Master Built Heavy Relic 1974/1951 Nocaster. Made with the utmost quality in mind, Fender Custom Shop hand selects the light-weight ash bodies for each guitar.

Ron Thorn brings decades of expertise in guitar luthiery, namely inlay work, to the Fender Custom Shop. Thorn’s relationship with the Fender Custom Shop team stems from his wildly successful inlay business, Thorn Inlay — which has been the sole inlay provider for the Fender Custom Shop since the mid-90s. He’s built more than 800 custom instruments under the name Thorn Guitars, and will now build exclusively for Fender Custom Shop effective immediately. Thorn is among the first to assume the title Principal Master Builder — one of the highest honors at the Shop and in the guitar building community.
