The limited-edition Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster sports a smooth-playing Heavy Relic neck and a lightly relic’d ash body. A quartersawn maple Nocaster “U” neck has that comfortable “baseball bat” feel of some of the most sought after necks of the ’50s era. Topped off with aged hardware, this guitar is sure to become a favorite. Fender is only producing 95 of these exquisite electric guitars.

Custom Shop NoCaster pickups for authentic Tele tone
The Fender Custom Shop Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster is fitted with a Custom Shop Hand-wound Single-coil NoCaster pickup set, giving you the traditional Tele twang you would expect with this phenomenal instrument. These pickups deliver the classic and sought-after tone of a true vintage axe (just ask any of the Tele fanatics here at Sweetwater).
Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability
The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this Fender Custom Shop 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster solidbody electric guitar features a quartersawn maple neck with a Nocaster “U” profile. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks, a favorite among Sweetwater guitarists, is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You’ll also love the playability and feel of this 20th Anniversary Relic Nocaster’s narrow jumbo frets and comfortable 9.5″ radius.
