Fender and Joe Bonamassa Announce "The Bludgeon" '51 Nocaster
The new model is based on one of Joe's favorite guitars from his vast collection.
Joe Bonamassa and Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced the release of "The Bludgeon" '51 Nocaster, Master Built by Greg Fessler. "The Bludgeon" is a loving recreation of one of Joe's most favorite guitars in his collection which makes this release a very special event. These limited-edition guitars are custom built by one of the finest crafters in the world and will come in a very limited run of only 100 made. Due to the time it takes to perfect each build, only 1-2 guitars are built per month, making this a very rare instrument to own.
The Bludgeon comes equipped with a beautiful heavy relic lacquer finish along with a one-of-a-kind 2-piece select ash body, finished with a 1-piece flat-sawn maple neck with Bludgeon Nocaster"U" back shape. The guitar also sports a 3-saddle vintage-style JB Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, and of course, a certificate of authenticity.
