Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom '50 Pine Esquire Limited Edition 2020
2020 Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom '50 Pine Esquire Limited Edition, including Custom Shop Telecaster conversion kit. Based off of perhaps the rarest model of vintage Fender out there, this Pine Esquire is an homage to the some earliest of Leo's creations - barely produced for a year before they switch to the Ash body and Blonde finish.
Hand selected tone woods to vintage spec including period correct appointments such as the super beefy 7.25"-9.5" compound radius '50's Riff Sawn maple neck with no truss rod and a slightly thinner body than your average Tele. Finished in NOS "Flash-coat" Nitro Aged Black, meaning the finish is a very light coated finish with no buff, which exhibits some slightly additional wear from the previous owner but it does look in line with the factory finish and Closet Classic Hardware.
Includes a stock '50 Esquire conversion kit from the Custom Shop to convert this to a Tele config. as these bodies all have a neck pickup cavity. Handwound CS neck pickup, control plate and single-ply pickguard. Ridiculously light, this thing practically needs to be tied to the ground to avoid floating away. Includes Limited Edition OHSC and all pictured paraphernalia.
Weight: 6.59lbs / 2.99kg.
