Fender Brad Paisley Esquire Maple - Black Sparkle


Expected release date is 10th Nov 2020


Modern country superstar Brad Paisley has used the Fender Telecaster for years, and it has become an integral part of the guitar slinger's sonic identity. With the new Brad Paisley Esquire, you get a guitar that looks, plays, and sounds great, with plenty of Paisley-inspired country flair. You'll first notice the guitar's Road Worn Black Sparkle finish, which will immediately distinguish it from most other Telecaster-like models. This is also thanks to a clear pickguard with black and silver paisley designs, and chrome hardware. You get the look of a road-tested, well-loved instrument, but with the playability of a brand new one. The body of this guitar features a Paulownia core with a Spruce top and back. The neck's "Enhanced V" profile was made to Paisley's own specs, and the 9.5" radius maple fingerboard will make any Fender player feel immediately at home. Plus, a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Brad Paisley Secret Agent single-coil neck pickup and Custom Brad Paisley Spec Vintage-Style Telecaster single-coil in the bridge position each offer plenty of tonal versatility. The Secret Agent single-coil in the neck is especially cool; it's mounted under the guitar's pickguard, completely out of sight under the paisley design, and provides some extra neck-pickup punch you won't find in any other Esquire since it was a single-pickup model. If you're after a guitar with a unique body, vintage single-coil tone, and some extra country-inspired flavor, then the Brad Paisley Esquire is a fantastic choice.
