Product Description

1950 Fender Broadcaster

It's said that fewer than 250 Fender Broadcasters were ever made before a cease production order came from the Gretsch company because of its trademarked term "Broadkaster". This 1950 Broadcaster is serial number 0221, with its finish stripped from the body, a re-wound bridge pickup and some unoriginal solder joints on the pickup switch plate from a re-wire when the bridge was re-wound. The knobs and height adjustment screws of the saddles are unoriginal. It features original pots and caps, pickup switch, frets, and tuners. The neck has some very light overspray on it but looks like the original finish is still present underneath - it has not been sanded down. You can still see some blonde peeking out from the closest edges of the bridge, as the finish was stripped while the hardware was still on the body. The guitar includes a 1960s Fender hardshell case. This is a beautiful piece of Fender and Electric Guitar History to be held in your hands!
