    The first Esquires were made with pine used for amps,they were sandwich glued to 1 1/2 inches

    The later Esquires were full thickness ash bodies

    As it’s a single pick-up guitar, is it reasonable to assume they’ll make sure that pick-up is of real high quality? Thoughts?

    In the old days the Esquire was below the Tele (or Broadcaster) price-wise. Now you have to pay the same money to get one less pickup. Funny.
    (at Andertons 339 GBP, same for the CV 50 Tele)

    But you get more pickguard material.

    Meh, I very rarely use the neck pickup anyway, but I'd rather not have a plastic pickgaurd if there's nothing under it.

    Obv people rave about Squiers and CVs but I’ve learned with this guitar that you don’t really KNOW until you hold and play one. I’m so impressed.

    This is the direction I decided to go for the Spring build:
    • Knotty pine (dark amber + Tru Oil)
    • Mint guard
    • Fender "Vintage" neck (7.25")
    • Vineham Classic T pickup
    • Eldred wiring
