Fender / Esquire / 1954 / Blond / Guitar

All original 1955 Fender Blackguard Esquire in excellent condition. It's hard to find a Blackguard these days and even harder to find one in this condition! Beautiful example of a 1954 Esquire with only minor play-wear and a few dings and dongs here and there - even the original frets are still in great shape. The electronic is all original, the pots are stamped 304.4.XX, the tape in the cavity reads "Eleanor 10/9/54", the neck is penciled TG-8-54 and the body 7-54. Even so Esquires only have one bridge-PU, the tricky "Esquire-circuit" manages 3 tonal different sounds with its 3-way switch, which will not let you miss the neck-PU! Nice typical early/mid 50s round C neck profile with almost no wear at all. Very resonant guitar, the legendary flat-pole pickup sounds amazing, no harshness at all - very warm and powerful. The pickup reads 6,16K. It's also lightweight with only 3,05kg. Superb instrument and perfect investment! Comes in orig. (restored) Fender Poodle case with red plush interior.
