This Used 2008 Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Nocaster Relic by Dennis Galuszka in Black weighs 6 lbs 12 oz. It is here on consignment and it is in great shape. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.
Masterbuilder Dennis Galuszka built this beast in 2008 and it is a special guitar. It sports a killer, heavy relic job which gives this Black Guard on Black Nitro Nocaster a deadly look. It's got a lightweight Swamp Ash body which helps it weigh in at 6 lbs 12 oz.
The neck is made from Quartersawn Maple and is carved into a chunky Nocaster U Profile. The measured depth of .950" at the 1st fret and an even inch at the 12th certainly qualifies as a Baseball Bat. The one-piece neck carries a 9.5" fingerboard radius and Medium Jumbo frets. 1.650" nut width is spec on for a Vintage Fender as is 25.5" scale length.
The Nocaster Bridge and Neck pickups are absolutely spot on for that classic warm-but-bell-like tone that can bite in the bridge and be fat enough for Jazz in the neck. A master volume, master tone, and 3-way pickup selector cover the electronics. This is a loud, lively, and resonant Tele that nails the Early 50's tone. Through a Champ or Princeton Reverb, you have a host of classic tones at your fingers that beg for a little Reverb and Trem.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
