Unique capacitor/resistor network provides you with three fun and usable tones
One of the captivating things that guitarists ranging from Luther Perkins (Johnny Cash) to Michael Monarch (Steppenwolf) have always loved about the Fender Esquire is the marvelous range of tone you can get from just a single single-coil pickup. The Fender Custom Shop faithfully reproduced this quality in their Limited Relic Pinstripe Esquire guitar by giving it a unique capacitor/resistor network and Eldred esquire wiring. From bright and brassy to hot and unfettered, you'll find all the tone you'll ever need in this Limited Relic Pinstripe Esquire.
Only the perfect tonewoods will do for this Fender Custom Shop guitar
One of the standards that the original Esquire set for Fender was the use of ash as a go-to body tonewood. Thinner than a standard Tele, this Limited Relic Pinstripe Esquire's hand-selected lightweight ash gives you the perfect combination of vivid resonance and comfortable feel. But compared to it's beautiful AA birdseye maple neck, the Limited Relic Pinstripe Esquire's body is really nothing to look at. Hand-aged and shaped to Fender Custom Shop perfection, this magnificent neck feels like a long-lost favorite guitar from the first time you pick it up.
