USED Fender Esquire 70th Anniversary (2020)


Add to Cart

Only made for one year in 2020, this Lake Placid Blue Esquire by Fender is in great condition. The Esquire was the very first solid-body electric guitar offered by Fender in 1950. With an elegant single-cutaway silhouette, adjustable 3-saddle bridge and a lone, repurposed lap-steel pickup in the bridge position – the Esquire laid the groundwork for all solidbody electric guitars to follow and foreshadowed its more famous sibling, the Telecaster.

Like the earliest Esquire models, the 70th Anniversary Esquire features a pine body – a lightweight wood known for punchy and complex tone – and upgrades it with our roasting treatment, greatly improving the resonance of the body. Other features include a lacquer finish, thick “U”-shaped neck, Tim Shaw-designed Esquire bridge pickup – inspired by an original ’50 Esquire from Songbirds Museum in Chattanooga, TN - special anniversary neck plate and tweed case. Includes tweed case containing certificate of authenticity and other case candy, such as original paperwork, strap, bridge plate, cable and more.
