A Custom Shop Team-built limited run of only 100 instruments.

The 1959 Esquire Relic LTD guitar takes us back to Fender's early days. It features a 2-piece premium ash body with a gold nitrocellulose lacquer finish. A late-'50s C-shaped maple neck has a light-tint lacquer finish. Other features include a '63 custom Telecaster bridge pickup, gold hardware, and a vintage-style top-load Telecaster 3-saddle bridge. For "real thing" authenticity, the guitar has been given the "Relic" treatment--made to show years of natural wear and tear; with nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware, and aged plastic parts. Includes hardshell tweed case, strap, cable, "ash tray" bridge cover, and limited edition certificate.

I have had the privilege of purchasing and playing this guitar...let me say it is well worth the investment. The action is great and the tone is unmistakable. A truly great guitar that should be in anyone's collection. I own 10 guitars and this one is one of the best by far.
