Starting with a Vintera 50s, then moving on to the 70th Anniversary Broadcaster, and then to the AV 64 Tele, I finally took the plunge and decided to join the Custom Shop family. Today I added a Custom Shop 55 Esquire to the fold. This one is Fiesta Red and relic'd. I was anti-relic until just recently. This edition the Custom Shop also included the complete control panel for a traditional Tele wiring and that is how it came. The Esquire panel is in the case and I may eventually swap it out. First impressions, I love this thing. I was a little hesitant buying such an expensive guitar without playing it first. But, over the past 18 months of really playing all kinds of guitars, I'm pretty certain of the specs I like (mostly the neck chunkiness) and so I was OK taking the risk. Pics below.
