Used Fender Custom Shop 1959 Esquire Relic Black 2004

available for immediate delivery


Super resonant & a dynamite player, this gorgeous Custom Shop '59 Esquire really delivers the goods! Classic styling, featuring a slender profile maple neck joined to a light weight ash body finished in black. But of course the real magic lies in the single coil bridge pickup with period-correct wiring. Professionally set up with fresh strings & low action so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition: The COA states the guitar is a Relic, but it is very light - various minor nicks & dings; scratches, light weather checking & mild finish wear. It actually looks more like a Closet Classic than a Relic.

Neck: Nicely rounded, slender profile maple neck with black dot inlays. Frets show a tiny bit of wear, but have plenty of life in them. Vintage-style tuners in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body: Solid swamp ash body finished in black. The black finish is thin & the grain can be seen under it - really cool! Top-loading bridge with three adjustable saddles & bride cover included. Single-ply parchment pickguard. Guitar weighs 7 lbs 6.8 oz.

Electronics: Single coil bridge pickup - 6.45K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs; 3-way selector switch. All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case: Original hardshell case included along with COA & accessories.
