Being the first of anything is an illustrious place to be, but when you are Fenders first solid-body guitar you can claim a certain legacy imprinted upon mankind for generations. The Fender Squier Esquire was the first solid-body electric Fender produced. Debuting in 1950 the Esquire began life as a single pickup electric morphing over a short space of time into the two pickup variant we know today as the Telecaster. To celebrate the birthday of the Esquire Fender has reissued the single-coil version of the Esquire with the intriguing three-way pickup selector.

Pine Body

Cut to the classic shape of the dreadnought upper portion of the body to the classic single cutaway of the lower portion of the Esquire frame. The body is made from Pine a sprightly tonewood used due to its plentifulness and bright tone. Pine is also light and aids sustain. The grain is almost non-existent which makes it great for solid coloured bodies.

Maple Neck

The Squier Esquire is fitted with a beautiful Maple neck and fingerboard. The Maple neck provides rock-solid support and the smoothest of possible playing experiences. The neck radius is the classic 9.5" making it one of the most versatile and comfortable necks ever made. The fingerboard is also made from Maple and gives the Esquire it's snappy tight tone. Playing this neck is a dream and is often found on much more expensive guitars.

Esquire Elctronics

One of the more striking features of the Squier 50s Esquire is it's novel approach to a single, single-coil guitar. The three-way selector allows different levels of control for the single pickup. In position one, you can only control the volume of the pickup while in position two the volume and tone are both available to control. In position 3 you can control volume while the fixed treble fall-off capacitor adds a little more high end and gain to the overall sound allowing a great deal of control from the volume.

Hard-wearing Hardware

The bridge, machine heads and control plate are all Squier parts and will maintain a stable and accurate tuning will complement the overall look of the guitar. The Esquire sports a vintage-style bridge with barrel saddles and string-through-body design. This throwback Squier model also features 1950s-inspired headstock markings and rich-looking nickel-plated hardware.

The Squier Limited Edition 50s Esquire is an excellent choice of guitar to celebrate Fenders anniversary. With an intriguing electronic fixture and the simplicity of the one single-coil, this is most definitely a rock and roll machine. Allied with the beautiful neck this is an extremely good guitar for the price and would be a perfect upgrade for a beginner or even a great second guitar for a gigging guitarist.
