    Vintage White, maple neck, single pickup and some serious mojo. I can hardly believe it, but it’s real and yes the headstock does say Esquire. I was able to get this beauty just yesterday and am beginning to get to grips with the maple neck as have always had a rosewood fretboard on all of mine.

    First impressions are that this is a well put together guitar that plays well out of the box. The pickup is strong and the selector switch is wired in the classic manner. The knobs are solid and look like the ones on my 62 Tele the selector switch is 50s style.

    Play-wise the neck feels great and familiar. Similar to the aforementioned Telecaster. I am quite ok with the frets that are well finished.

    I had originally planned to create my own version, but fortunately have had a bit of luck which meant I could pull the trigger on this and I can say this guitar doesn’t disappoint. The neck is glossy and sleek which is up my street as most of mine are.

    Any way some photos.....I’m off to my loft for another session.

    So far, it's an FSR only in the UK - hopefully we'll get them in the USA.....

    I am totally chuffed with it. It is available in UK & Europe as an FSR, which is why I grabbed hold of it ASAP. Regarding the future it would be great if this was added to the range either in the CV or VM line. Also wonder if a MIM may re-appear. It is a shame that the Esquire is not a part of the range.

    Here’s the reverse side showing a gorgeous skunk stripe. I am truly lucky to have this. There’s something in the name Squier Esquire that rolls off the tongue!

    very cool
    I hear the guy from "Princess Bride" saying it in my head …

    "My name is Inigo Montoya … my guitar is the Squier Esquire … "

    you know, with the Spanish accent and all.

    Enjoy

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means

    Great looking guitar, can someone explain the allure of having just one pick-up? Seems rather limiting to me.

    I also have a question about the single pickup design. What is the switch for?

    I had the same concern: I cannot deal with skinny necks.
    But this guitar is too cool to my eyes so I decided to pull the trigger. What I can tell you is that the neck is not thin. Period. It is on pair with the neck on my classic series 60s telecaster, it this means anything to you. In other words, it is not the usual classic vibe too-thin-to-be-payed neck, in no way.

    If you have the possibility to get one, grab it before it is too late!

    • Position #1. This corresponds to the solo bridge-pickup position on a Tele. On the Esquire, however, the pickup is routed through the volume control only, with the tone control bypassed for a hotter and louder lead sound with even more high-end.
    • Position #2. In this middle setting, the Esquire’s pickup is routed through the volume and tone control—identical to position #1 on a standard Telecaster. It sounds a bit warmer compared to the Esquire’s #1 position.
    • Position #3. Here, the tone control is again bypassed and the Esquire’s pickup is routed through the volume control and a fixed “treble roll-off ” capacitor/resistor network for a very dark tone that also has a slightly decreased output. Leo intended this as a “bass preset” that would allow the ’50s guitar player to enter bass territory by simply flipping the 3-way switch.
