Guitar Of The Week:Fender Custom Shop - 60th Anniversary Series 2-Pickup Esquire
The Original Pine-Bodied Tone Monster!
The 60th anniversary of the Telecaster guitar has been celebrated by the unprecedented release of some of the most collectible and historical instruments from their storied history. The 60th Anniversary Series Esquire 2-Pickup model is a reproduction of Fender's earliest two-pickup "electric Spanish guitar." Adding the front pickup greatly increased the instrument's versatility by allowing guitarists to play more rhythm parts and helped forge music history in the process.
The 60th Anniversary Series Esquire 2-Pickup model features a select pine body finished in black lacquer; a relic'd, one-piece quartersawn maple neck; and a 21-fret maple fretboard. A Custom Nocaster Vintage Tele single-coil pickup in the bridge position and Vintage '50s single-coil pickup in the neck position offer the player a wide variety of tones for any style of music. Playing this fine instrument makes you wonder why Fender did not continue making instrument bodies from pine. It is incredibly lightweight and extraordinarily resonant. The substantial, yet extremely comfortable "medium V" profile neck helps give the notes definition and that classic Telecaster response. This limited edition tribute to one of Fender's benchmark moments is highly collectible, unbelievably responsive, and the feel and playability are out of this world. Call to reserve yours today!
