1958 Fender Esquire vintage player with rare top-load bridge and added neck pickup (factory routed). The 4/57 dated maple neck is straight, plays fast and is all original including the bone nut, frets, decal and string tree. The body is ash with a very old transparent white refinish and weighs in at a feather light 6.5 lbs. The original pickups were replaced 20 years ago with hand wound Van Zandt Vintage Telecaster Pickups that absolutely duplicate the sound of the originals. The flat top fine knurled volume and tone knobs, the CTS pots (date to the 47th week of 1958), Cornell-Dubilier ZYW1S5 .05uF paper-wax capacitor, back plate (# 35358), cloth wiring, CRL142 3-way switch, Daka-Ware "Pat. Numbered" top hat switch tip, nut, tuners, bridge, saddles bridge plate are original. With the added neck pickup, some additional wiring was incorporated and the original guard was replaced with a vintage correct Telecaster pick guard. Ships with a plush G&G reissue poodle case.
