The very first solidbody electric guitar offered by Fender in 1950 was the Esquire. With an elegant single-cutaway silhouette, adjustable three-saddle bridge and a lone, repurposed lap-steel pickup in the bridge position, the Esquire laid the groundwork for all solidbody electric guitars to follow and foreshadowed its more famous sibling, the Telecaster. Like the earliest Esquire models, the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire provides intriguing innovations — decorated in a White Blonde color with a black pickguard.
This American-made model features a lacquer-finished pine body — a lightweight wood known for a punchy and complex tone — and upgrades it with Fender's roasting treatment, greatly improving the resonance of the body. The thick '50s Broadcaster U-shaped neck is made from maple, complete with a matching maple fingerboard on top. The Tim Shaw-designed Esquire bridge pickup was inspired by an original '50s Esquire from Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga, TN, and can be controlled by a three-way blade switch and a master volume and tone. Break the cycle and channel your vintage energy — the 70th Anniversary Esquire is ready for you now at Replay Guitar Exchange!
