This is a Mike's Music and Sound Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire. The Esquire is in excellent condition and has only been gently played a few times in our store. Small finish crack near the neck pocket - see picture. Pictures are the actual guitar for sale and not stock images. We are an authorized Fender dealer and the guitar includes the full Fender warranty and all the original documentation. Mike's Music and Sound is a small family owned, single store and most of our inventory is on display for our customers to see and play. We rotate and service our display inventory on a regular basis and condition is noted each time. Our staff will fully inspect and test the guitar before we ship and if we do by chance find an issue with your order, you will be notified immediately and given options if need be.

If you have any questions please feel free to message us.

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.

Production of the 70th Anniversary Esquire will be limited to 2020 only.
