From Fender –

“Simplify---amplify. Nothing rings truer to Leo Fender’s philosophy than the iconic single-pickup 1959 Esquire®. This Tele® precursor commands attention with its hand-wound ’58 Tele® bridge pickup and full-throttle wiring---capturing player feel and articulation, while screaming with legendary Esquire® tone and style. Wearing a carefully aged Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish, the Time Machine Esquire® Custom has the looks and playing feel of a true vintage example.”

An unapologetic re-imagination of a true Fender original, this guitar boasts vintage features like a two-piece select ash body and tinted quartersawn AA flame maple neck with a large "C"-shaped neck profile and a slab rosewood fingerboard, while delivering modern playability in a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 6105 frets.

Additional appointments include a handy Tele conversion kit for players who wish to use a second pickup, 3-way switch, single-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree.

This one is currently set up with a DiMarzio Twang King neck pickup along with the stock Fender ’58 Tele bridge pickup. The original Esquire single pickup conversion kit including pickguard included.

This guitar is basically brand new with original case candy including a Custom Shop catalogue and original pickguard. This Fender Custom Shop Esquire Custom combines vintage style, relic looks, and modern materials for a guitar that looks and feels as good as it sounds.

This very special guitar is double bound with an Aged Shoreline Gold finish that's been given the Journeyman Relic treatment. It is currently set up with a parchment pickguard and a sweet sounding Dimarzio Twang King neck pickup, but of course it can be rewired back to original quite easily so a new owner buyer will have options.

It recalls all of the tone and mojo we love about early period Telecasters. It definitely has that vintage vibe, without the vintage price tag.

Comes in its original Fender Custom Shop case with catalogue, tags, strap, ashtray bridge cover and Certificate Of Authenticity.
