    Couldn'r resist snapping this in a shop window in Denmark Steet London. The ticket reads 'Fender Esquire 1959 £12,995 All original with orig. case'.

    Great example with nice body wear, early rosewood board and 8 hole pickguard. Sweeeet, but way out of my league!

    May do that next weekend - there is nothing on their website about this particular guitar. Do you think they'd let me play it? ...Oh my word that would be something special.

    If you went and it was quiet, they'd probably be happy for you to plug it and play it.
    Seen the guitar there as well when I've been in over the last few weeks. Was hanging behind the counter with a couple of lovely pre cbs strats. They have some incredible guitars there

    Vintage and Rare are quite friendly people in my experience, go for it.

    It's a bit funny, you were there, but now you are asking us if they would let you play it,....:twisted:

    I have a week off work soon, might go in on a quiet weekday morning and see if they let me have a try...will post back if so. It's a real beauty, would love to play it!

    Oooh, that would be a credit card temptation. I shall strongly resist the urge to visit their site...

    Haha - I didn't go in, just snapped it in the window! I was in the area having a second look at the Squier Bigsby Cabronita - that gives you an idea how much money i have at the moment :twisted:

    They would certainly let you have a play if you told them you were road-testing it for all the interested folks on TDPRI - 'the No. 1 Telecaster authority in the world'....
    that should be worth a ten minute blast!

    Exactly what I was thinking - good publicity for them no? I'm gonna have to get in there and try it.
