Produced in strictly limited numbers to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Fender's Custom Shop, this Relic Chocolate 2 Tone Sunburst Telecaster features a two piece Ash body paired with a solid Rosewood Neck. The Journeyman finish is engineered to represent a well loved, and a well played guitar, handed down through the years but not leaving the house often, with a few marks and some checking.
The Solid Rosewood neck itself is a soft v 1957 profile on the back, with a 9.5 radius on the front capped with 6105 frets which gives a traditional feel in your hand but with modern playability. The electronics in this Esquire are a Hand-Wound '58 Pickup which runs to a 3 Way Switch which comes stock wired with Full Throttle Esquire Wiring:
- Position One, the pickup is wired straight to the output jack
- Position Two adds the volume control to the circuit
- Position Three offers the traditional volume/tone control scheme.
Further, this instrument comes with a Telecaster wiring kit allowing conversion, a Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
