Bought one from a friend and TDPRI member a couple of months ago and just put a Cavalier Lion in it this weekend. Black Paulownia body with a maple neck and so light it feels like it could float away. (sorry no pics just yet) This my first experience with an Esquire and now I know what the buzz is all about. They're a gas to play. I find myself playing different licks and in a slightly different way just because of the difference in it over my Teles.
