    1951 Fender No-Caster Butterscotch Blonde Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial #1674.
    Exceptional black-guard No-Caster in nearly time capsule condition. No changed parts, modifications or repairs. Shows very little signs of use. Has minimal, if any, fingerboard/fret wear. Body and neck dates of 3/1951. The body is 3-22-51 TG. The neck date is harder to read but decipherable. Mix of no-line and lined Kluson tuners stamped Patent Applied For, which would be correct for this era. Original cord, thermometer case and bridge cover with solder drop. Correct clipped decal. Incredibly rare in this condition. Has some slight raised finish running on the edge of the body (bass side upper bout) that may be from finish drying, as the finish as sunken overall, likely due to climate. There is also some discoloration at the end of the fingerboard but no fingerboard wear. Does not appear to be refinished. There are no factory marks for R&R. Thermometer case is in very nice condition, with some slight fraying to the edges but overall beautiful. 7.10lbs. Original hard case included. Condition: Excellent.
