1957 Fender Esquire. 100% Original right down to the frets, screws and strap buttons. Nothing has ever been changed or modified. It has never had a telecaster conversion, as there are no pickup mounting holes in the neck cavity.
This is simply the coolest guitar that has passed through our shop in a long time. Looks awesome, plays great, straight neck, low action, killer sound!
The serial number is -17XXX. Neck date is 5-57, body date is 4/57. Pickup measures 6.1K Ohms. The guitar weighs in at 7 lb. 1 oz. Nice, big V-Neck measures .904" at 1st fret and .999" at 12th fret. Certainly a "V" but not too sharp. Really nice feel.
You cannot go wrong with this guitar. It's an all original guitar you can play. Comes with original red plush lined Tweed case in fair condition. all latches and hinges work, and it is structurally sound, just a lot of wear on the tweed and leather ends.
Satisfaction guaranteed. Keep the guitar for 48 hours and if not fully satisfied, return for a full refund minus shipping charge.
