Introducing my new Fender 70th Anniversary Esquire! I've been stalking these for awhile and I finally saw the right one pop-up - for the right price - at a retailer located here in Canada. It's a joy to play! It weighs in at 6 lbs and 10 ounces. Regarding potential mods, I'm a sucker for the Fender Compensated Brass Saddle set that you can get for $20 from the Darren Riley website. The body is routed for a neck pickup, so I could always go the 'Double Esquire' route if I desire...but I doubt that I'll ever do that (it's just nice to know that it's an option). All in all, I’m really impressed with the quality of this instrument! It sounds great and it feels wonderful!
