NOVEMBER…AS THE CROW FLIES

10 11 2009

Good Evening.  Ahem…It’s not often that one might stumble across an original Fender Esquire, let alone an Esquire Custom.  Basically what we have here is a Telecaster with only one pick up, a different tone circuit and binding on the body.  Way back when, you could buy a two pickup Telecaster for about the same price as one of these single pickup Customs.  To most people it didn’t make much sense to spend more to get less…except for the way cool binding.  This one sports a Rosewood fretboard, which I prefer.  It reminds me of my ’63 Tele Custom…Yup, Custom.  Most guitars from the 60’s have a Maple Fretboard.  This example is from 1969 which sadly is the very last year of the original production run from the late 50’s to when this little girl was born.  I’m working from memory here but I think there were only about 12 of these made that year…at any rate not many of these guitars exist at all in stock, clean condition like this one, from any year prior to 1969. Just check the clean interior of the original case it’s standing in. Most of these were probably modified to act and look something like their sibling, The Telecaster.  I love this guitar but I’m considering putting it out there for sale some time soon, probably via the Internet.  Keep an eye out and I’ll keep you posted. Not a tease, just something for you to drool over for now.
Hope y’all have a big ol’ Turkey Day this year…Cheers!esquire1
