Fender 2004 50's Esquire Telecaster Tobacco Sunburst Guitar Mexico
Used with wear associated with use. Minor light cosmetic scratches/scuff if any. Small dent on the back of the neck between fret 2 and 3 to the right of the skunk stripe. It can't be felt when playing. Small dent on the edge of the headstock. The pickup is not stock, it appears to be a 4 wire stack, sounds great. Volume pot was upgraded to an EVH low friction. Otherwise the electronics all seem to be stock. Very little fret wear if any at all.
The Fender '50s Esquire Electric Guitar is the electric guitar that started it all. Originally released in 1950, it was Leo Fender's first marketed design. The single-pickup precursor to the Telecaster, the Esquire features an ash body, maple neck, vintage-style bridge with steel saddles, volume, tone, and a 3-way quick tone-change switch.
The 3-way toggle switch gives you 3 preset tones. In the bridge position the pickup is only connected to the volume control (the tone control is disconnected). This minimal circuitry provides more top-end sparkle than a Telecaster. In the middle position the standard tone control circuit is activated and it functions just like any other tone control. In the neck position the tone control is disengaged, but a tone-shaping capacitor is added that rolls off a lot of the top end and some of the bottom. This setting produces darker tone along with slightly less volume.
