The first run of Esquire first appeared a Fender catalog in the spring of 1950, it remained in production until it was dropped from the production line by CBS in late 1969. The Esquire was an important step in Leo Fenders efforts to transport steel guitar tone to the electric realm. The Esquire also already featured the volume, tone and 3-way switch configuration that found its way into the Telecaster. This specific 1967 Esquire has been refinished in a very tastefully reliced 3-tone Sunburst using period correct nitro-cellulose lacquer. The neck pickup is a Custom Wound “häusel” tele single coil. the guitar is a absolute dream to play because of the professional refret it had a little while ago.
Checked and completely set-up by our accomplished luthiers.
