If you're looking for the ultimate 50's Fender with that perfect "rip your head off" Tele tone, this 1959 Fender Esquire in all original condition is about as perfect as it gets. Preceding even the venerable Telecaster by being invented in 1950, Fender's first production model, the Esquire has cemented its place in music history as a timeless classic.

This guitar is all original, an ash body, a one piece maple neck, the original electronics (pots dated to 1959), tuners, and hardware, and has been reasonably played in, but for 1959 is in incredible condition. The body has marks around both the front and back, with the occasion spot of missing finish on the top. There is moderate, but expected fretboard wear.

This guitar has the original 1950's tweed case, which is heavily worn.

Weight-6.70 lbs.

Serial #33783 Comes w/ original hard shell case
