Fender Custom Shop Relic Double Esquire Special Wide Fade Sunburst
The Fender Esquire only has one pickup?! Not the Double Esquire, a pair of handwound 51 Nocaster pickups loaded into a single bound ash body and featuring a beautifully flamed maple 10/56 "V" neck, this is an all round crowd pleaser. Wide Fade Sunburst is a shop favourite and really sets this Journeyman Relic Tele off. What a cracker!
A new original, this design Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Double Esquire Special in Wide 2 color Sunburst, offers a tasteful mélange of style and sound, combining a single-bound two-piece ash body with hand-wound Custom Shop Loaded Nocaster pickups and modified ’51 Nocaster wiring. The blender pot allows you to blend the neck and bridge pickups, and the special tone cap & resistor offer a super-useable rhythm tone in the neck position.
The pair of Custom Shop Loaded Nocaster pickups includes a hand-wound loaded single-coil bridge pickup and open-loaded neck pickups, both wired to the three-way pickup switch with our tonally flexible “Modified ’51 Nocaster” wiring. Position 3 selects the neck pickup alone, with a .001uF capacitor and 10K resistor for a highly usable rhythm tone with slightly rolled-off volume and tone. Position 2 offers the neck pickup alone, wired directly to the volume pot, while Position 1 offers the bridge pickup alone, with volume and blend pot to mix in the neck pickup to taste.
Other features include a tinted AAA flame maple neck with “10/56 V” profile, and 21 6105 frets, single-ply Eggshell pickguard, ’51-’54 bridge with brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
