    When Fender was forced to stop using the name Broadcaster, Broadcasters had the blend circuit. So did the first Nocasters have the blend circuit? It would make sense that at least some would have and flathead screws too, but I have never read anything about this. Anyone know where I can learn about this piece of Fender history.

    Well, when Fender Custom Shop made replicas of these Nocasters at least in the 2000s, they incorporated the blend circuit and the slot head screws, filistered saddle length screws, the router hump and the flat for the jack bore.

    The thing they chose not to do, was no Butt Crack.

    My understanding was that the NC had the blend. Whether they all did is beyond my knowledge of the situation. :cool:
