Fender Custom Shop


It's hard to believe that it's been a full 70 years since Fender launched the Broadcaster and started the solid-body electric guitar revolution. This special limited-edition Custom Shop Broadcaster makes that 70 years disappear with an incredible combination of classic vintage features and adds a seriously comfortable "vintage compound" 7.25–9.5" radius fingerboard to the rift-sawn neck. Hand-wound '50-'51 Blackguard pickups give it authentic "twang" to go with its looks.

Over the years, Guitar Center's Platinum Rooms have honed their reputation of having a selection of some of the world's most desirable and exclusive gear. The Platinum Guitar Collection features a carefully considered selection of stunning instruments from the world's top builders, whether from the custom shops of major industry powerhouses or from the coterie of top-flight small luthiers. Packed with limited-edition, special-run and one-off unique guitars, the Platinum Collection is your source for the world's finest acoustic and electric guitars and basses. Call today to make a connection to your dreams.
