Original-Era Esquire Style
For the guitarist who yearns to go back to the very beginning, this is the guitar that’ll do the trick. The single-pickup Esquire goes all the way back to 1950, even predating its two-pickup version, the Telecaster®, by several months. The Classic Series ’50s Esquire delivers an authentically styled dose of that first-Fender design and vibe, with an ash body, single bright bridge pickup and more. Ideal for players eager to explore the very earliest roots of Fender sound.
