The most exciting thing to happen to the Esquire since 1959.
The Fender Esquire is one of the guitars most desired by knowledgeable players of the Telecaster family of instruments. Its unique circuitry and biting bridge pickup gave the Esquire merciless tonal edge that made it the choice of such greats as Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. It has gone on to re-emerge again and again in the hands of great guitar players.
The Custom Shop has painstakingly researched original instruments in order to re-create the 1959 Esquire, including its rare "top-load" bridge. For this Triple-Threat guitar model, they wanted to give the Esquire more tonal options without changing the iconic look or its famous responsive, resonant qualities. What to do? They placed Texas Spec neck and mid pickups UNDER the pickguard! Now you have 5 different pickup configurations to choose from, while the re-created Esquire still has everything the guitar heroes who made history with it fell in love with. And as a Closet Classic it has the aged look of a well-worn warrior. Modern wiring, black Top Hat selector switch, and a bone nut. are finishing touches
