Fender Custom Shop 1955 Limited Edition Relic Esquire

Fender's 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 a Relic body finish that evokes long years of wear and tear. Authentic Esquire snap comes from its hand-wound '55 Telecaster single-coil bridge pickup with staggered/beveled pole pieces, 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 highly worn Heavy Relic treatment on the back, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, three-way tone/pickup switch with black "top hat" tip, single-ply five-hole white pickguard, '55 Telecaster bridge with 1/4" steel 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.
