was the 53/54 flatpole in the esquire when you got it?
Nice! Great videos. That's about as close as I will ever get to seeing a great sounding guitar like this one.
No, it came with a flatpole Seymour Duncan Antiquity. I`ve had the old one for years. Would love to get an original mid 50s pickup someday though.
Thanks a lot!
You inspired me to join the 56 club. Love this guitar
Such a nice guitar, congrats again! Glad to help! Hope to hear you play it live someday!
Yep, rare instrument, looks and sound.
What a gorgeous guitar. The tone is absolutely fantastic.
It blows my mind that something so simple can sound so good.
I like the way you play too.
I'm In Love !
Thanks! I think that`s some of the secret here. Since it`s so "simple" you gotta work really hard with things like pick attack, where to pluck the string, volume/tone etc. At least it`s like this for me.
Picture of the day
That one looks great! Where can I steal it? Love those white guards.
That's a beaut
Wonderful axe, built the same year as me! No way can I afford a piece like that, and my playing doesn't merit it. But I put together an Esquire a few years back out of mostly Fender parts, and a Lindy Fralin Blues Special pickup. I love the raw simplicity of the thing, and I've found myself playing it most of the night when I've brought it to gigs.
Nice '56 Esquire!
Here's my '56 Tele

Beauty all the way around, guitar & playing.
Absolutely gorgeous guitar and gorgeous playing. I could listen to that kind of playing for a very, very long time. Beautiful!
