    After selling off most of my gear before the New Year, I ended up with 3 Rock solid guitars.

    A FCS 52 Tel, Eric Johnson Virginia Strat, Gibson R7 Goldtop 57 Les Paul.

    The Missing Link and final addition for a while is the 70th Anniversary Esquire in Surf Green.

    Thanks everyone!

    I had a Strat and a Mustang Bass in the same colour and regretted selling them both so, Surf Green was a no brainer for me....

    I typically am a little more traditional in colour choice, but this one screamed I'm yours, take me home.... Who was I to argue...

    Fantastic! (And it sounds like you’ve got the basics covered for those rare occasions when you need more than one pickup!)

    Please let us know how you feel about the tone of your new Esquire. I've got my eye on the same guitar but in Lake Placid Blue. The shop I do business at has already knocked several hundred dollars off for me saying they'd really like to move it. It weighs in at 7 lb 3 oz so it meets my weight criteria.

    Just curious, is there a neck pickup rout under the pickguard?
