    I'd suggest that you contact Fender with the serial # . They could answer your question .

    Supposedly only about 480 Nocasters were made between February 51 when they started cutting the Broadcaster name off the decals and approximately September 51 when the "Telecaster" name started appearing.

    I believe it is a cusom shop 52 telecaster with the NOS finish (as opposed to relic), and the color is "nocaster blonde." See this link:

    Its referring to the colour of your guitar....Nocaster Blonde. The guys are right.

    Yes, colour #99 in the FCS brochure. Nocaster blonde. The last in the list as it happens. After that they go with a lettering system so BT is butterscotch blonde, DB is dirty white blonde etc.

    At the moment floor travellers are being included with CS guitars so its possible to double check specs on site before buying. Last year it was Cruz Tools!

    I would assume Flame A would be a light flame in the finish as opposed to AAA Flames on a body.
    I owned a Custom Classic Strat that had the faintest hints of a flame which became more prominent at different angles, lighting. I was not a heavier flame seen on some necks.
