The Fender 70th Anniversary Broadcaster celebrates the remarkable origins of one of Fender's most iconic models. Fender introduced the Broadcaster in the fall of 1950 but soon after had to discontinue use of the name due to the Gretsch company's BroadKaster trademark, eventually renaming it the Telecaster. Features include an ash body with Blackguard Blonde lacquer finish, period-correct black phenolic pickguard, thick "U"-shaped neck, Custom Shop-designed '50-'51 Blackguard pickups, special anniversary neck plate, embroidered case, and a custom COA. The controls are wired for standard Tele operation, with an optional wiring kit included to replicate the unique "blend" circuit used in original Broadcasters. Production of the 70th Anniversary Broadcaster will be limited to 2020 only.
