Hi everyone, I finally decided to join TDPRI. As a Tele/Esquire fan, I've had the pleasure to see some of the incredible guitars posted here. It is finally my turn to share some of the guitars I own. My 1966 esquire custom: I bought it from the second owner: a French Canadian gentleman. He acquired it in the late 70's. He told me that he paid $300 Canadian dollar for it. These were the days! This one was obviously played but it is still in great shape except one ugly spot next to the bridge. Apparently the first owner thought it was a good idea to put his initials there. When the second owner tried to remove them he used some product that didn't work very well with the finish... As some of you probably know, Fenfer shipping ledgers are unavailable except for 1966 (which I discovered a few weeks ago reading The Fender Archives by Tom Wheeler). That year only 5 Esquire customs were made. This is certainly the only lefty. As always my OCD kicked in so I bought some period correct case candy to go with it. Tonewise it sounds brighter than my '63 Esquire. This one is also lighter. The neck has a A stamp which is the narrowest in terms of width. My 1963 Esquire: I bought it from the original owner. He received it as a gift for his 10th birthday. He took some lessons and then gave up. This guitar is near mint. It plays and sounds great but for some reason my 66 is my favorite.
