1962 FenderEsquire – Blond (Tortoise Shell Guard)

It’s a guitar that sounds as good as it looks – a 1962 Fender Esquire in Blond with a factory original tortoise shell pickguard! Esquires are some of our favorite guitars out there, and this one is no different! Nothing quite like the crisp, clean tone you get from that bridge position. This guitar remains in great shape, with the appropriate amount of play wear and patina you can expect from a guitar of this age. Notably, there is a small area on the bass side of the body where the paint has flaked slightly. This guitar remains original, except for an exceptional refret job and accompanying new bone nut.
