2006 Fender Custom Shop Jeff Beck '54 Esquire by John English!
Nice example of this Jeff Beck Esquire by the Master of Masterbuilders John English (RIP). The guitar is in minty condition with all the case candy as shown. The guitar plays great and is super lightweight and resonant. Comes with the original flight case and many extras.
Over the course of his 40-year career, Jeff Beck has attained heights of guitar greatness seldom if ever equaled, and he has long been regarded as one of the finest and most distinctive voices of the electric guitar, period. The Fender Custom Shop is very proud indeed then to introduce a very special 150-instrument run of the Tribute Series Jeff Beck Esquire Relic guitar, exquisitely and meticulously modeled after Beck's famous Blonde '54 Esquire.
This exact reproduction duplicates the original guitar's light weight, unusual body contours, dings and wear patterns, soft V-shaped '57 one-piece maple neck, chipped black pickguard and brass bridge saddles (with which Beck had replaced the original steel saddles soon after buying the guitar for $60 from its original owner, Walker Brothers guitarist John Maus).
Legendary Fender ''pickup artist'' Abigail Ybarra carefully recreated the single '51 ''Nocaster'' single-coil bridge pickup, and the guitar's amazing authenticity extends even to the control wiring, 1056 serial number, and even a cosmetically aged vintage-style guitar strap. Beck himself, in fact, was almost fooled when our reproduction arrived at his door, thinking on first opening the case that he'd gotten his original guitar back!
