Here we have the Squier Ltd Edition Classic Vibe '50s Esquire finished in the vintage-styled Butterscotch Blonde.
Appearing in 1950, the Fender Esquire was their first solid body electric guitar and was a huge milestone for the Fender company.
Similar to the Telecaster, the Esquire blazed the way for a whole host of Fender guitars, eventually including the Telecaster which arrived a little later in the decade.
Featuring a single pickup, located at the bridge, the Esquire delivers a unique vintage sound, loved by Fender fans alike.
These limited edition series, coming in three distinctive colours, are a classic reimagined.
This special run, limited edition electric guitar gives you the opportunity to own this incredible instrument at an affordable price.
Squier Ltd Edition Classic Vibe '50s Esquire Butterscotch Blonde Key Features:
- Limited Edition Esquire Electric Guitar
- Single Cutaway Body
- "C" Shape Neck
- Modern 9.5" Radius Maple Fretboard with Period Correct Tint
- 21 Narrow Tall Frets
- Vintage Style Tuners
- Vintage-Style Tele Bridge
Great Playability with Period Correct Tint
Offering a fine balance between vintage style and modern playability, the Squier Class Vibe is a true authentic homeage to the original Fender Esquire Telecaster
The Pine/Nato body is true to the the Esquire style producing a distinctive warm twang, with the distinctive cutaway of the Tele style ables the player to reach those higher frets for those classic Tele solos.
Attached to the body is a Maple neck with period correct tint which has a comfortable "C" shape profile adding authentic vibes to this period detailed instrument.
This neck has a matching period correct tint maple fretboard with a modern 9.5" radius for easy and comfortable play and fretting.
The Esquire comes equipped with just one single-coil pickup, one less than the standard Telecaster pickup setup.
However, this simple design doesn't mean this historic Esquire guitar is without versatility.
A three-position switch is on hand to give you three distinct options.
In Position 1, you have the pickup going through the volume control with the tone control bypassed. This gives you hotter output producing high-end filled tone that's perfect for playing lead guitar and chunky chops.
Switch it over to the middle setting for Position 2 and the pickup will go through both the volume and tone control and give you a warmer sound, perfect for chord work.
Set it to Position 3 which will bypass the tone control again and activate a "treble roll-off" feature for tone with a lot more bass, great for jazz and many other sound applications.
Vintage Style Hardware
This guitar comes with six vintage style tuning machines up on the headstock of the Squier Classic Vibe Esquire providing fine and secure tuning matched with old school aesthetics.
With a continuation of the classic vintage style the Esquire sports a vintage-style Tele bridge.
To produce that classic Tele twang, the bridge features three chrome barrel saddles, again adding to the retro aesthetic of this Classic Vibe Esquire.
Fender have offered this classic representation of the '50s Esquire at an afforable price, so their is no excuse not to purchase on for your guitar collection.
With limited availability though, you need to act fast before you miss out.
