Fender Custom Shop - Master Built '59 Esquire Relic
Ocean Turquoise Nitro Finish
Masterbuilt by Jason Smith
Out of all the Fender Telecaster family instruments, the Esquire is probably one of the most desired guitars by respected players in every musical field. Its unique circuitry and "biting" bridge pickup created a "merciless, manical, tone-machine" when first introduced in 1950. The weapon of choice by such greats as Jeff Beck and Bruce Springsteen to name a few, this guitar has gone on to re-merge again and again in the hands of many of today's great guitar players.
