6105/9.5 I love this color combo though.
Now that I like. Beautiful.
Needs a white pearl pickguard to give it in a more "retro" attitude but I do like the color.
What do you mean it never was? There's pictures of it, right in the link!
Don't get why it has a twisted tele pup in the bridge? Mine has Nocaster pups.. It's a cool enough color but wasn't offered in the 50's, not sure if it's for me.. Had a chance to get one in Sonic Blue NOS, played great but the color didn't work for me.. Went with a used black one.
I like all the neat colors. One of my favorite lines was ProGuitarShop's Noblaster series. I had my eye on one of those for a long time.
Don't get me wrong, I like the traditional stuff, too. Eventually I would like to have a Nocaster Blonde Nocaster, one in a special color and one more.
Nocaster necks rock...
Mine looks a little like that:
I absolutely love mine.
It's very green.
I picked up my '51 Noblaster last year. It's got a light weight Nocaster body (has the neck pocket lip) and binding with custom color, big Nocaster neck with rosewood, and modern pickups being twisted tele and texas special.
This thing looks like a 62 Custom but feels like a Nocaster. The COA says '51 Nocaster NOS. I love this gem!
I think one of the biggest "Nocaster" features is the blonde color. Second would be the big U-shaped neck. Third has to be that 7.35" radius with the tiny vintage frets. I have a hard time calling anything other than a blonde tele a Nocaster. Add to that the 9.5" radius, modern frets and well...it's a cool retro tele with hyper-modern features. Personally I never found any love for the 7.25" radius necks. I tried. 9.5 is still a pretty tight radius compared to most modern necks by various builders today, but I love it.
Daywalker...that tele looks SWEET! I love the binding too!
It doesn't have the dark circuit, or the blend?
On another note, this seems like a big guitar, until you hand one to Greg. It looks like a little toy in his hands. :^)
I've seen that very guitar at ProGuitarShop. My buddy and I went there a couple or three years ago when they were in a little warehouse in Tigard, OR. We met the owner and he was kind enough to show us all the guitars. I seen a ton of the Noblasters (pretty sure yours included or one in the exact color scheme).
There was a Daphne Blue one with a black pickguard and a Madagascar Rosewood neck. That Daphne one gave me goose bumps (no kidding, I actually showed my arm to my friend). I love the whole concept that ProGuitarShop had with those.
Small world isn't it!
There is a long story behind this one, but I spotted it at ProGuitarShop when I visited them in their warehouse. It gave me chills. I told my buddy, "I'm going to have one just like that some day."
Long story short, somebody bought it and put it up on Craigslist. They gave me a few weeks to come up with the money and I picked it up a couple of hours ago.
Sorry for the poor smartphone snapshot...
This is the very guitar that Andy plays in the demo. It is 059
I have one almost exactly like that, except in Nocaster Blonde. Same pickups, radius, frets, pickguard. The body is marked "Nocaster" in the control cavity, but it was actually called a "Closet Classic 50's player Tele" or something like that. It was a limited run for Maken' Music and it's one nice player. My stand's rubber tubing has deteriorated so I put those socks on there, looks pretty comical now that I see it in the picture.
