Set-neck resonance, stripped-down vintage vibe, and a Seymour Duncan Invader.
All souped up and ready to rock! Custom racing stripes, abalone dots, a super-slim contoured mahogany body and set mahogany neck, graphite nut for smooth tuning, and 22 jumbo frets deliver high-octane thrills with searing visuals and sumptuous feel. Single volume knob, string-though-body hardtail bridge, and single Duncan humbucker keep it all simple with scorching output.

I just recently purchased a new Fender Esquire GT in chrome blue. Out-of-the-box, I tuned it to pitch. The guitar played very well, very resonant, acoustically. The action and neck straightness were very close to my preferences.There is a finish flaw on the racing stripe where it meets the neck on the top side. Very noticeable. This was not purchased as a blem, this guitar was ordered as a regular stock instrument. This guitar qualifies as a blem.The instrument is meticulous in every other way. Fit, finish, playability, looks, fret-work, and sound. It is a shame it has a top surface finish flaw.The guitar was tested through a Mesa Boogie Nomad 100 watt head and a Mesa 4x12 3/4 back cabinet. The Seymour Duncan Invader pick-up can either scream or get buttery, depending on the amount of gain and presence. It sounds great. On the clean channels it is darker and warmer sounding than the standard PAF type pick-up. Its power allows it to push the clean channels into a bluesy grind. Very nice. I also ran it through a Roland Micro-Cube. All settings sounded good. Just watch out for the bass punch on the clean settings. This pick-up has power!Overall very nice.

This guitar looks and sounds great, but mine started falling apart quickly. The input jack came out, the pickup becomes loose and even comes out of the socket, and the strap pegs become loose as well. I'm getting new strap pegs because my straps fall off these all the time. So as long as you can put up with these faults, you should be happy with your guitar.

a beauitful, little monster, roars when you crank up the volume, no doubt due to the Seymoure Duncan Invader. beauitful finish, easy to handle neck, and a surprise to hear played. if you're looking for a Little Monster you should try one of these Fender Esquire GT's!
one of the greatest lookin guitars you will find for the money. the sound is great to play punk. it has the bare esentials of the guitar but the high output pickup sounds great.
This guitar is an incredible value, the Invader pickup is one of the best rock pickups I've ever heard. The only things about the guitar that aren't phenomenal are: 1) It is definitely a single-minded instrument. It has a great sound for overdrive, and does clean up if you back off the volume, but it is a little harsh for clean sounds. 2) I had to have the intonation set after it arrived at my house, which is to be expected after being shipped through the mail; but now this guitar is great! Definitely the best value i've seen in a long time.
I think its a great guitar. I have only owned it for 1 day but I cant get myself to put it down. The single humbucker is all this ax needs. My only complaint is the freets are huge. I dont really like big freets but all in all its an amasing guitar. I recamend it to anyone with a hevyer sound
I bought this guitar in blue 12 months ago, and despite some initial issues with fret buzz and having to replace the pot, I have found this guitar to be exceptionally sturdy. Although it lacks the versatility of say a strat it is a top quality guit nontheless and looks the absolute business when used at a gig. However, 12 months down the line I am looking for something with more tonal dynamics, so think twice before purchasing the one-trick pony...
Good sounding guitar without too much hassle. A nice compromise for those looking for the competition Mustang coolness, Delonge Strat simplicity, and a set neck guitar. At last non-USA electronics that are worthy of not replacing. Good manufacturing and finish. Good full sound from a direct pickup to amp sound: no caps or tone pot. Nice, simple and to the point.
excellent sound out of invader but small marks on the body itself.
This guitar is an incredible value. You won't find many Fenders ever selling for $300.and with a Humbucker Pick-up, the sweet paint job, and a smootht curvacious body (hot huh?)It's more than worth the money.I prefer this over the telecaster and they have virtually the same body designThe main difference is, you won't get a pickguard with this.
GREAT feel..probably the best guitar i owneven though it has a low price! I'd say the most outsanding feauture are the Invader pickups!!! so nice...FANTASTIC for rock!!
this guitar is the all around best guitar i have ever used. i bought it about 2weeks ago. it is great for any style of music! buy it from this site it is the cheapest place around!
