Fender 2014 Limited Edition Relic Esquire

This came out as one of the 2014 Custom Shop limited editions.

Features a lightweight ash body with bird’s eye maple neck/fingerboard, complete with the weathered, relic look.

The Nocaster Blonde finish is another interesting element. Sometimes it appears vintage yellow, sometimes honey blonde. Sometimes showing off the ash grains, sometimes rather solid looking. But there’s no denying that many guitar players love the relic look.

It’s a pity Fender doesn’t make much of these non-pickguard guitars. Perhaps the cavities do affect the sound?

Comes with all the goodies like custom hardcase, strap and cert. Really cool.
