    It doesn't get any better than a nice blackguard, does it?

    It is a thing of beauty, congratulations! The Custom Shop seems to do a great job on those and there really is nothing like those blond finishes with a blackguard, at least to my eye.
    It just looks so "right".

    I have a soft spot for nocasters, but can't shop Custom Shop, which is why I started Project Squier nocaster. Still a work in progress, but it's coming.

    Nice! Congrats!! I had one briefly - a 2009 model - and wanted to keep it but the neck was too much for me. Great guitar though.

    Love my nocaster. Play it more than my other teles. Love the fat neck, wish fender would make more fatter necks for their other teles.

    Just curious does the 2012 nocaster come with a quarter sawn neck as standard?

    I had a nightmare in the days when I dug Gibson's and the nitro on their guitars. I owned both a R9 and a R8 and any time apart from summer was fine. With summer heat and humidity the necks became unplayable sticky and drove me insane. How are you finding the nitro neck on your nocaster which is just gorgeous ? I've read lots of sticky neck stories about the 52ri but I'd love to own a nocaster if those necks have nice hard nitro finishes and don't get sticky. I sold the Gibson's and wouldn't dream of buying another as they are overpriced mediocrity compared to Fender in my opinion.
