An absolutely stunning 1954 Fender Esquire in Blond with an unbelievable vibe! The Esquire was Fender’s very first Electric Spanish guitar in 1950, and was an instant success for the budding company. It wasn’t until late 1954 into 1955 that noticeable changes came to the Esquire and Telecaster models. This particular guitar retains many of the early fittings, such as a flat pole pickup, round switch tip, dome knobs, and brass saddles! The neck is worn in a fantastic way, as the neck finish has been played to give a smooth, sealed wood feel. The one pickup is incredibly versatile and wide ranging, rated at 6.54K in the bridge position. The frets are in adequate shape, but do show wear around the cowboy chord area. The nut on this example has been replaced to ensure proper playing for many years to come!
It weighs in at 7 lbs 6 oz, and comes with later hardshell tweed case.
