FENDER 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue

Electric guitar with roasted pine body and Fender Tim Shaw Designed pickup, including case

The  Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue  is an authentic recreation of the first Esquire electric guitar with which the Californian company laid the foundation for its success story in 1950. Just like the historic original, the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire features a  light pine body , while the  strong neck is made of maple  in the  "'50 Broadcaster U" profile . A  Fender Tim Shaw Designed Esquire single-coil , managed via the typical  Esquire circuitry , provides crisp vintage sounds with twang at the bridge. Last but not least, authentic hardware including an  American Vintage string-through-body bridge  and precise  vintage style tuners  complete the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue and ensure tuning stability.

FENDER 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue
The Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue is a recreation of the original Fender Esquire with a single pickup.

Authentic woods with modern treatment

The authentic woods of the Fifties with  pine for the body  and  maple for the bolt-on one-piece neck  form the basis for the construction of the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue. The body is subjected to a modern  thermo-treatment  which significantly reduces the residual moisture of the pine wood and thus promises a particularly resonant sound. With the powerful  "'50 Broadcaster U" neck profile  and the classic  7.25" fretboard radius , this electric guitar offers the realistic feel of a vintage original.


Versatile sounds with a single pickup

single coil  developed by pickup luminary  Tim Shaw  in  bridge position  handles the electrical sound conversion of the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue. Based on the original pickup from a '50s Esquire at Songbirds Musuem in Chattanooga, Tennessee, this pickup delivers a lively  vintage  sound with perfect  twang  and high assertiveness. The Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire pickup is naturally managed by the authentic and authentically versatile  3-way Esquire circuitry . Accordingly, position 1 of the blade switch provides only the volume control, while position 2 activates the volume and tone controls. Position 3, on the other hand, connects the volume knob to a fixed treble roll-off.


Reliable vintage style hardware

Last but not least, reliable hardware equipment in authentic vintage style completes the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire MN Lake Placid Blue. A  Fender American Vintage Telecaster bridge with  three brass string saddles  and  strings-thru-body construction  supports the crisp sound of this electric guitar. Behind the  bone nut  on the headstock,  Fender Vintage-style tuners  with smooth action ensure precise and stable tuning of the Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire.
