In 1950, Fender launched its very first solid-body electric guitar. Dubbed the Esquire, it had a single-cutaway body, 3-saddle bridge, and single lap-steel pickup, laying the groundwork for all the solid-body electrics to come, including its more famous follow-up, the Telecaster. To celebrate its heritage, Fender's releasing a special anniversary edition. Like the original, it's made from pine, but the body is now roasted for greater resonance, and outfitted with a Tim Shaw-designed pickup — inspired by an original '50s model — a lacquer finish in White Blonde, Lake Placid Blue, 2-Color Sunburst or Surf Green, and a thick U-shaped neck. Arriving in a tweed case, it will be limited to 2020 production only.
