Ever since I knew anything about guitars, I've had a crush on mid-50's blond, white guard Esquires. I've wanted one forever, but I don't have $25K burning a hole in my wallet. So over the summer, I took stock of the assorted parts I had lying around and decided to treat myself to a 50th birthday present (birthday in Nov). I contacted MJT Guitars and started a project. Well, it arrived today...and it's incredible!!! Modern neck, SD Little 59 pickup...but it is sooooo awesome feeling and sounding.
I know relics are a love/hate around here, and I myself would much rather my guitars "age" naturally. But knowing I'll never own an original 50's Esquire, I'm totally down with this.
I'm in love, guys!!!

Congrats, that is beautiful!

My 50th birthday present (my Logan t-style) is still my #1, so I think your judgement is sound, self-present-wise.

Happy 50th! I think the best gift for this milestone is a guitar! It’s was for mine.

Enjoy!
