Overview

Joe Stummer's Fender Esquire, recreated in exacting detail.

The Limited-Edition Joe Strummer Esquire from Fender Custom Shop celebrates the British guitarist's legacy as a musician and punk icon. Strummer played guitar with an intensity that cut like a knife with raw energy and passion in every intense swipe at the strings. His style was direct, honest, and empowering to the listener which would create legions of die-hard fans around the world. Strummer's most heavily used guitar throughout his time with the Clash was his tried and true Fender Esquire. A perfect match for his stripped down, no nonsense delivery, the Esquire was the perfect tool for Strummer to hammer away on show after show. The guitar was one of Strummer’s favorites and appeared on many of their most famous performances especially in the latter years of the band.

Fender Custom Shop re-creates this incredible piece of music history for a special limited edition run. Master builder Jason Smith has reincarnated the Esquire to its Clash-era look, with its black racing stripe, custom “Bourbon Street” sticker and custom Relic finish. Not just for the collector, this guitar is built to take a beating and produce straight-ahead searing tone for anyone bold enough to wield it on stage. Features include a 2-piece offset seam alder body, with a 1-ply eggshell pickguard, flat-sawn maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, a ’59 “C” shaped profile and Schaller mini tuning machines. A top-load/string-through Tele bridge assembly is set up with a Josephina hand-wound 55/56 bridge pickup wired up to a 3-way switch and a ‘59 Esquire wiring. Also included are a certificate of authenticity, guitar strap and a custom pink anvil case with “Strummer” stencil and leopard print lining.
