OVERVIEW

Some designs are simply timeless.

The very first solid-body electric guitar offered by Fender in 1950 was the Esquire. With an elegant single-cutaway silhouette, adjustable 3-saddle bridge and a lone, repurposed lap-steel pickup in the bridge position–the Esquire laid the groundwork for all solid body electric guitars to follow and foreshadowed its more famous sibling, the Telecaster.

Like the earliest Esquire models, the 70th Anniversary Esquire features a pine body–a lightweight wood known for punchy and complex tone–and upgrades it with our roasting treatment, greatly improving the resonance of the body. Other features include a lacquer finish, thick “U”-shaped neck, Tim Shaw-designed Esquire bridge pickup–inspired by an original ’50 Esquire from Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga, TN–special anniversary neck plate and tweed hardshell case.

Production of the 70th Anniversary Esquire will be limited to 2020 only.

FEATURES
  • Roasted pine body
  • One-piece maple neck with 7.25” radius fingerboard and 21 vintage-tall frets
  • Tim Shaw Designed Esquire bridge pickup
  • Esquire Tone Circuit
  • Custom neckplate, COA and embroidered hardshell case
