    Yep. Same as my favorite James Burton Standard Tele.

    Hi. I can also confirm the November availability of the FSR Esquire. I put a deposit on one with GuitarGuitar back in early June, and at the time it was scheduled for August.

    I was itching to get hold of it, have a real hankering for another guitar, so contacted the store again last week. Couldn't quite believe it when it was put back to November. What happened to September or even October?

    There's also a double bound sunburst CV Tele on GGs website, which has an October delivery. Some of the refreshed CVs are already available, so I'm guessing the whole range will be available by the end of the year.

    In the end my GAS got the better of me, and i got the store to transfer my deposit to a pre owned Squier VM Jaguar. I'd already saved enough for the Esquire, and just had to pay the balance. It arrives on Tuesday. I'll post some pics when I get it.

    Regards, Toby

    Hi guys, as the body is poplar, how do you expect its weight? I am no expert in woods and having some issues with my back I am in need of a quite light guitar.

    Is poplar supposed to be light or not?

    It's somewhat equivalent to alder, but just like alder, or any other wood, you can't generalize. Each body, even from the same board from the same tree, is individual.

    I'm saving for the shell pink Jaguar, but that is gorgeous.

    pine is the original Esquire/Telecaster body wood.....when they first came out, that's what they were - way back when in 1950.

    Came to this thread late. But was looking at modding a Tele to create a more modern update of the Esquire and bumped into this on the store website. I think it’s great to see this model. I think this will be a great addition to the CV range and would really like to get one....

    I think it’s a shame that the Esquire has been out of the Fender range for so long and wonder if this limited run Squier will mean that a Fender model will appear - possibly MIM in the near future.

    Whatever happens. Thanks Fender for doing this!

    19821182_1411117855646164_1893933044_o.jpg I built this one with a BG1400 Seyour Duncan at over 32K it did everything I wanted it to and I'm normally a neck pick up guy,also thank goodness for the Poplar body as my CV experiences have been they are lead sleds when made from pine. I'll be waiting for these to hit my dealer !

    That's better than "pretty good", I'd say it's gorgeous. I love the look of the neck without any fret markers. Is the neck your creation or did you buy it pre-made?

    The previously available MIM Esquire's were really nice guitars and had a number of vintage style appointments with the round string tree, 5 screw pickguard, vintage style tuners and a fat neck. I love mine.

    That's a good-looking guitar. I'd say an Esquire is the naked truth. It does exactly what you tell it to do and if you can, or can't, play, the world is going to know it immediately.

    When we get the odd re-issue of an Esquire do they have the thinner Esquire body? I am correct with Esquire bodies being thinner than Telecasters, aren’t I?
