Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire, Maple Fingerboard, 2-Color Sunburst
What are “B-Stock” models?
These are new instruments that may have a small cosmetic blemish, which does not affect playability or tone. While blemishes will vary, these instruments still retain their manufacturer’s warranty. Any significant marks will be mentioned in the description. All “B-Stock” models receive a full factory setup and hand-inspection before shipping.
The very first solid-body electric guitar offered by Fender in 1950 was the Esquire. With an elegant single-cutaway silhouette, adjustable 3-saddle bridge and a lone, repurposed lap-steel pickup in the bridge position – the Esquire laid the groundwork for all solidbody electric guitars to follow and foreshadowed its more famous sibling, the Telecaster.
Like the earliest Esquire models, the 70th Anniversary Esquire features a pine body – a lightweight wood known for punchy and complex tone – and upgrades it with our roasting treatment, greatly improving the resonance of the body. Other features include a lacquer finish, thick “U”-shaped neck, Tim Shaw-designed Esquire bridge pickup – inspired by an original ’50 Esquire from Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga, TN – special anniversary neck plate and tweed case.
Note: After close inspection, this instrument is free of any noticeable marks and/or blemishes. (See Pics)
