Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1950 Pine Esquire®

Perhaps the rarest Fender® guitar is its first one—the single-pickup pine-body Esquire®. The very first Fender electric solid-body guitar. Wasn’t even around for a full year, and yet it changed guitar music forever. Fender shipped barely a handful of them before changing the body to ash and the finish to blonde.

True to the original, this faithful recreation features a slightly thinner (1.5”) laminated pine body. Its one-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a 1950 Esquire profile, no truss rod, a 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound radius and 21 medium vintage frets. With its NOS “flash coat” nitrocellulose lacquer finish and Closet Classic hardware, the Vintage Custom 1950 Pine Esquire looks like a well-cared-for original with only slight aging to its metal parts. A hand-wound ‘50-‘51 Blackguard pickup is outfitted with full-throttle Esquire wiring (Position 1: Volume and Tone, Position 2: Volume, Position 3: Pickup Straight to Output) with a three-way switch. Other features include a single-ply eggshell pickguard, 1950 Esquire bridge with original style steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, and disk string tree.

Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, 1950 Esquire control assembly Conversion Kit, and certificate of authenticity.
