The 2012 limited collection by Fender's Custom Shop sees the arrival of 10 new exotic models, nine guitars and one bass.

The Custom Shop honors the Nocaster with the release of the 1951 New Old Stock (NOS) Nocaster and the 1951 Relic Nocaster. Both models feature an ash body with a Nocaster Blonde finish, and include all-new Twisted Tele pickups designed by Fender’s Master Builders. For added authentic feel, the 1951 Relic Nocaster features special aging treatment, evoking the magic of an aged, Fender classic. Other features include a one-piece maple neck with early-’50s U shape, maple fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 6105 frets, three-way pickup switch with custom modern Tele wiring, nickel hardware, case and certificate of authenticity.
