Fender Custom Shop 2015 Limited Edition 1955 Relic Esquire

$ 3,900.00

The 2015 Limited Edition 1955 Relic® Esquire® is a peerlessly crafted take on the single-pickup classic that preceded even the Telecaster in Fender history. Everything about the instrument takes you back to that original era, with a lightweight ash body in Dirty White Blonde or Two-Color Sunburst lacquer Relic body finishes that evoke long years of wear and tear. Authentic Esquire snap comes from its hand-wound ’55 Telecaster® single-coil bridge pickup with staggered/beveled polepieces, and, in a special touch, the guitar comes with a neck pickup conversion kit containing a ’55 Telecaster single-coil neck pickup, pickguard and control assembly should you prefer dual-pickup tone and performance.

Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with “soft V” profile and worn Relic treatment on the back, 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, three-way tone/pickup switch with black “top hat” tip, single-ply five-hole white pickguard, ’55 Telecaster bridge with ¼” brass saddles, American Vintage tuning machines and a Custom Shop Limited Edition neck plate. Includes blonde Limited Edition case containing a 1955 Fender Downbeat catalog insert reproduction.
