More about LIMITED EDITION JOURNEYMAN RELIC® '57 ESQUIRE® RW NECK

Big and warm-sounding, yet retaining authentic Telecaster ‘honk’, the Limited Edition Journeyman Relic ’57 Esquire—Wide-Fade Chocolate 2-Color Sunburst is a hot-rodded version of this classic ‘secret weapon’ guitar. Celebrating the Fender Custom Shop’s 30th anniversary in style, this guitar is for players who aren’t afraid to reach out and bend the fundamental forces of the universe to their will.

The hand-wound Custom Shop ’58 Tele® bridge pickup is connected via Full Throttle Tele wiring, offering a variety of explosive tonal options. In Position One, the pickup is wired straight to the output jack—turbo-charging your sound—while Position Two adds the volume control to the circuit and Position Three offers the traditional volume/tone control scheme. The elegant rosewood neck slightly tempers the traditional Tele twang, adding sultry overtones to its sound.

Other features include a lightweight two-piece select ash body, rosewood neck with ’57 “Soft V”-shaped profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard, 21 6105 frets, ’55-’57 Tele bridge with steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, four-bolt neckplate and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, Tele wiring conversion kit and Certificate of Authenticity.
