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.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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!

This Fender smokes!

By Sureshot00

from Cincinnati OH

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

RAWK!!!!!

By Etchells

from Manchester, England

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...

Nice little simple guitar: nofrills just thrills.

By neurotic1

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.

Very Nice

By Spute

from KS

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.

Good look, good sound, a few quirks

By Dan Amrich

from Castro Valley, CA

The finish is a lighter shade of blue than the ones shown in the official photos, for whatever reason. Very light, set-neck construction, and that Invader pickup is wicked hot. If you want to put on Fender/Schaller-brand straplocks, have some toothpicks handy--the existing screws are enormous, and you'll need to fill in part of the holes. It's a great bargain--a total rhythm scorcher.

The only thing i do not like about this guitar is that it doesn't stay in tune for a very long time. Besides that, the action is awesome and it looks killer.

Buy this guitar!!!

By strato138

from Bozeman, MT

This thing is a steal. The finish is almost perfect on mine and it sounds great. However I would not recomend this guitar for playing with clean tones-my strat blows it out of the water. With an overdriven amp or distortion this puppy screams. I highly recomend this guitar for anyone wanting to play metal/rock/punk. Grab one while you can!!!

mental telepathy

By Bluedog-CiQ6c

from Bremen, IN

The first thing that struck me is how light this guitar was. I like light guitars but was this guitar too light to sound good? The truth is it sounds great! The seymour duncan invader has a great bassy punch that I think may make up for this guitars anorexic stature. The set neck makes for great sustain. As for the way this guitar plays that completely depends on the set up. Mine showed up at my house with the action to low at the first couple frets and to high at the upper frets. The fret board was also dry and chalky. However after ajusting the truss rod and bridge, sanding the fret board with 2000 grit sand paper soaked in lemon oil and new set of strings this guitar practically plays itself! It's a very comfortable guitar and the sleak streamline neck is as fast and nimble as a f14 fighter jet. Roll back on the volume and get a fat bluesy tone or crank it up to chunk and shred. Very versitile for its limited equiptment. All in all this is a very unique and fun guitar to add to your collection.

Great for distortion

This guitar is great for distortion, it's a great punk or metal guitar, a strat or tele would be better for clean, but overall this is a great guitar, it is also amazing light.

Excellent deal!!!!

By Dogg63

from Newark, OH

I'm a Bass player who bought this guitar to learn on at home. I was really impressed with the value the Esquire offers. Yea I could have spent my 300.00 on a guitar with a trem, 2 pickups, etc. But the guitar quality would have been questionable. Instead I went with less "bells & whistles" and much better design features. Set neck, string thru body, carved top and 1 very hot pickup, thats what I went for and was very pleased.
