An unbelievably detailed recreation of a legendary Fender instrument.
Over the course of his 40-year career, Jeff Beck has attained heights of guitar greatness seldom if ever equaled, and he has long been regarded as one of the finest and most distinctive voices of the electric guitar, period. The Fender Custom Shop is very proud indeed then to introduce a very special 150-instrument run of the Tribute Series Jeff Beck Esquire Relic guitar, exquisitely and meticulously modeled after Beck's famous Blonde '54 Esquire.
This exact reproduction duplicates the original guitar's light weight, unusual body contours, dings and wear patterns, soft V-shaped '57 one-piece maple neck, chipped black pickguard and brass bridge saddles (with which Beck had replaced the original steel saddles soon after buying the guitar for $60 from its original owner, Walker Brothers guitarist John Maus).
Legendary Fender "pickup artist" Abigail Ybarra carefully recreated the single '51 "Nocaster" single-coil bridge pickup, and the guitar's amazing authenticity extends even to the control wiring, 1056 serial number, and even a cosmetically aged vintage-style guitar strap. Beck himself, in fact, was almost fooled when our reproduction arrived at his door, thinking on first opening the case that he'd gotten his original guitar back!
The guitar comes in a vintage tweed case, and includes a DVD interview with Beck, 8x10 color photo, Custom Shop certificate, and Master Builder signature and serial number decal on the back of the headstock.

This is an excellent guitar. I bought it as an investment, but will most likely keep it as it's just too cool to sell. Todd Krauss built my guitar. The attention to detail is astounding. The guitar is a feather-weight and weighs under 6 pounds. It sounds and plays amazingly. The neck is perfect too... a '57 soft-V. I'm sure this guitar will be worth sometime someday as Fender only built 150 of these world-wide.
This guitar is pretty good. You can play a way cheaper telecaster and get the same sound, but then again this is a custom guitar and the chips and dents are supposed to symbolize all of the nicks that the real guitar might have experienced.
This thing is amazing! The attention to detail by Fender's Custom Shop is incredible! This sound is so vintage and smooth too! Definitely a collector's item in the future.
I bought this and it looks as though it was damaged during transit or something. The paints all messed up... the dot inlays are mismatched... it looks like they picked this up at a swapmeet or something.
