  • The Fender Esquire – a veteran from the early days of the electric guitar. Equipped with only one pickup in the bridge, this is a guitar for the absolute purist! Made for guitarists who prefer a clearly definite sound more than multiple circuit variations. So, let’s talk about the HW ’51 Loaded Nocaster® pickup which is installed on the Fender Custom Shop Esquire 52. This magic pickup produces a brilliant sound that is second to none. There is no alternative if you are looking for the ultimate twang! Unique clean and overdrive sounds are guaranteed. If required, the Fender Custom Shop Esquire 52 offers other sound facets that can be called up via the 3-way full-throttle Esquire circuit (volume and tone/volume control only / directly to the output).

This black-colored Custom Shop Esquire 52 has got an authentic relic finishing. It gives the impression of a guitar that has been used in studios and on the stages for years. Really wonderful!
