I could go on and on about how great Esquires are (that's why I keep buying them). The slab board period is largely neglected- a lot of people don't even realize that Fender ever made a rosewood board Esquire, much less a slab. You think of an Esquire, you think of a maple board. They only made slab board Esquires for a very short time (mid 59 until early 62) and a fair number are top loaders. This is a string through version with the option of top loading (it still has the holes in the back of the bridge plate), so you can string it either way. This one is well cared for and all original. I'm not sure about the frets but I would guess they are not original. It has no issues or mods of any kind. Condition is 8+. It shows the usual wear around the edges and some fade to the finish but it's a real nice example. The case is a brown "knuckle buster" and is original.
