The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~


Fender 70 Esquire Relic Blonde, 2008

Fender 70 Esquire Relic Blonde, 2008

Here is a rare Custom Shop Fender 70 Esquire Relic with Rosewood fingerboard in translucent blonde, and sporting an added Lollar neck pickup. This model was built in a run of 20 examples during 2008. The Fender Esquire was the first Electric Spanish style guitar to appear in a Fender catalog (all the others were Hawaiian or steel guitars), making its debut in the spring of 1950. This single pickup model didn’t have an adjustable truss rod, but by the fall of 1950, the two-pickup Broadcaster appeared and adjustable truss rods were standard for all the necks.

The Fender Esquire was the single pickup version of Leo Fender’s groundbreaking guitar, and appeared in 1950 with the short-lived Broadcaster, soon renamed Telecaster after a copyright notice from Gretsch, who used that name on a drum line. Structurally, they are virtually identical – many Esquires use Telecaster bodies and necks. The differences between the Esquire and Telecaster revolve around the single pickup. The pickguard is not cut, and the 3-way switch wiring provides a setting with a capacitor-resistor network simulating a neck pickup.
