1953 Fender Esquire

1953 Fender Esquire

The following description is taken from the 1969 Fender lovin' care catalogue

The Esquire provides the big beat lead for many of today's groups throughout the world. It has all the features of the Telecaster except that it employs one pickup rather than two. The fast action, truss-rod reinforced neck (available in maple), bridges adjustable for length and height, and three position tone switch of the Esquire provide it with qualities which have made it a favourite over the years. The Fender/Bigsby Tremolo, giving smooth action and accurate pitch return is now optionally available.

Custom models are beautifully finished in Sunburst with top and bottom edges trimmed with white contrasting binding. Regular models are finished in natural blond. Available in selected custom finishes and left hand models.

Standard neck with: 15/8" at nut; available 1 ½" and 1 ¾" by special order.
