I've been playing several for a while now, A-B'ing them with one another, Teles, S-types, non-Fender types, etc. Maybe it's just a narrow sample, but the Esquires seem considerably more acoustically resonant than T-, S-, and other types. And some of this seems to transfer to/show up when I play them electrically, too. Is it the unbroken pickguard vibration platform from the bridge plate to the neck? Fewer magnets? Saturn is napping? Or am I just *aurally leaning into the guitar to compensate for its lack of a neck pickup? Interesting, too, how the one-pickup design just invites more expressive and exploratory play, as it seems to say, "You gotta pitch in a bit more here, bub." Which suggests that * above explains my "more resonant" impression. When I get fired from my job because I'm sitting here daydreaming about guitars I will buy lottery tickets to fund my Psycho-Acoustics PhD. And then a lot of very generic cat food for the mid-quality box beneath the bridge. Ear-hugs from Psycho-land.
