A relic'd masterpiece of ash, maple, Indian rosewood a hand-wound pickup.

The Fender Custom Shop 1959 Esquire Custom Relic Electric Guitar Master Built by Dale Wilson will please any vintage Esquire fan fortunate enough to strap it on. Close inspection reveals the remarkable workmanship and relic treatment for which Dale of Fender Custom Shop is known. It's available in a vintage combination of Esquire specs. It has an ash body with a maple neck sporting a "U" back shape. The fingerboard is Indian rosewood with 21 vintage frets and a compound radius radius. Chrome hardware, a 59 Esquire bridge, a 59-style pickguard and a single handwound pickup come together to produce a fantastic look and classic Esquire tone.

Dale Wilson Master Builder
Dale Wilson arrived at Fender in 2003, joined the Custom Shop in 2005 and became a Master Builder in 2011. Building guitars has been a driving passion for the California native since childhood.

“Ever since I can remember, I’ve always loved guitars,” he said. “I didn’t dream of being a rock star; I dreamed of building the ultimate guitar. I was equally enthralled with the guitars just as much as I was with the players.”

Wilson comes from a long line of expert woodworkers, and the requisite Custom Shop zeal for outstanding craftsmanship has long been part of his DNA. He did repair work and mods in a small guitar shop right out of high school in the late 1980s; subsequently moving on to stints at Dobro and Rickenbacker before arriving at Fender, where he worked on Guild, Gretsch and Benedetto guitars before beginning his apprenticeship with various Custom Shop Master Builders.
