Those are really fantastic man. Kudos to you for being in a position to own such classics! I love to see threads with lots of pics of each one you have. Do you have a thread out here with them? I never knew that the early Esquires didn't have a string tree. Learn something new every day I guess LOL! :)

No one knows if TG is actually Tadeo Gomez , he died almost 30 years ago , and his family didnt have a clue what he did all those years ago at the Fender factory
Some think that the TG " signature " we're done by different people over the years , maybe TG was the shift leader?
It could be it means something different , no one knows.....
Maybe it stood for Thank God another instrument was out the door!
