Looks like a great guitar, so congrats for scoring it back :salude
I absolutely love Nocaster's, and mine is quite unusual in that it has a body that was stamped as a relic, but it was finished in Shoreline Gold (as a custom order), and received no relicing whatsoever.
Mine also has a very thin finish with the grain clearly showing through the finish... they do a great job at the Custom Shop. :jim
Wow, I never saw one on Shoreline Gold and that DOES look amazing. I always have thought the copper Telecasters with black guards were killer but the one you have there is equally as cool if not moreso!:salude Sweet amp too.
Thanks! Yes it's good to have her back. It's a relic but as you can see, the CS shop didn't get all sandpaper and chisel happy on this one. It looks like someone had just kind of got started with relic-ing it and forgot to finish it lol! Works for me. The vintage blonde Thinskin finish on the body is another thing you don't see often and it was one of the first things (after the flamey neck) to grab my attention when I first saw this axe back in 2014. It was special ordered that way according to the Fender CS Shop Traveller sheet I obtained from Fender.
No way I could ever part with that neck.
