Fender Custom Shop LTD Double Esquire Special Journeyman Relic-Aztec Gold

Fender Custom Shop

 

This piece was hand selected by our team in California and we are thrilled to be able to bring her back home. This guitar is truly a mean lean working machine that is sure to turn heads! 

A new original, the Limited Edition Double Esquire Special offers a tasteful mélange of style and sound, combining a single-bound two-piece ash body with hand-wound Custom Shop Loaded Nocaster® pickups and modified ’51 Nocaster wiring. The blender pot allows you to blend the neck and bridge pickups, and the special tone cap & resistor offer a super-useable rhythm tone in the neck position.

The pair of Custom Shop Loaded Nocaster pickups includes a hand-wound loaded single-coil bridge pickup and open-loaded neck pickups, both wired to the three-way pickup switch with our tonally flexible “Modified ’51 Nocaster” wiring. Position 3 selects the neck pickup alone, with a .001uF capacitor and 10K resistor for a highly usable rhythm tone with slightly rolled-off volume and tone. Position 2 offers the neck pickup alone, wired directly to the volume pot, while Position 1 offers the bridge pickup alone, with volume and blend pot to mix in the neck pickup to taste.

Other features include a tinted AAA flame maple neck with “10/56 V” profile, and 21 6105 frets, single-ply Eggshell pickguard, ’51-’54 bridge with brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
