A beautifully distinctive custom take on one of Fender’s earliest electric guitars. The Fender Custom Shop’s Limited Edition Relic Esquire combines original-era style with several specialized features and a worn Relic treatment for its nitro-lacquer finish in classic Nocaster® Blonde.
Other premium features include a lightweight ash body, maple neck with “large C” profile, 9.5”-radius AAA bird’s-eye maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets and black-dot inlays, a single Fender® “Wide Range” Humbucking bridge pickup, rear-loaded controls (master volume, master tone with Greasebucket™ circuit, which rolls off highs without adding bass), hard-tail bridge with vintage-style saddles, vintage-style tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Includes limited edition tweed case, strap, cable, Custom Shop picks, certificate of authenticity and polishing cloth.
