Here’s one of those new Vintage Custom edition for 2018, an amazing and super lightweight 1950 Double Esquire. Before the Telecaster forever changed the world in 1951, Leo Fender built several prototype guitars, testing various concepts that found their way into the final result. The Vintage Custom 1950 Double Esquire is a faithful recreation of one of those early models, the incredibly rare dual-pickup Esquire, which was outfitted with some very cool and compelling appointments that we felt modern players and vintage tone hounds alike would appreciate. It features hand-wound ’50-’51 Blackguard pickups offering incredibly fat and juicy tone, coupled with modified ’51 Nocaster® wiring and controls. You’ll find a blender pot in place of a standard tone control and an additional resistor on the rhythm circuit for sweeter output. The neck features a vintage 7.25″-9.5″ compound radius, which we found on some rare examples, giving it a unique feel even among vintage-inspired models. It also features medium vintage frets, which are slightly larger than vintage frets and very comfortable to play.

Other features include a NOS flash-coat lacquer Nocaster Aged Silver Sparkle finish, Journeyman Relic hardware, 2-piece off-center-seam ash body, tinted maple rift-sawn neck with 10/56 “V”-shaped neck profile, 21 medium vintage frets, 3-way switch, black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass saddles, bone nut, round string tree and vintage-style tuning machines.

Also, our guitar came brand new in late may 2018, but shows a minor factory finish flaw. There’s a very small dent on the back of the body. It came this way, not a shipping damage but a dent from  the factory. So you expect to have a bigger discount on this one.

Includes a deluxe Tweed hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
