    Nice!
    Yanno....if you *did* decide to go with a neck pickup somewhere down the line, don't forget Seymour Duncan custom shop offers the:
    Brad Paisley Secret Agent pickup for the "stealth" Esquire look.
    :)

    I have one of the Secret Agent pickups on order and looking forward to delivery this week!

    OP here, still loving my Esquire!


    Just an interesting FYI though...after some searching, I managed to find the Fender parts layout and spec sheet for the 70th Anniversary Esquire. It's a six page downloadable PDF document which contains some interesting data.


    Apparently the neck is .880" at the 1st fret and .990" at the 12th fret. And the pickup is an unbeveled Alnico 3 that's between 7.6 & 8.2 DC resistance.


    Anyways, just wanted to share some of these details (as I was curious before I decided to buy mine) and let folks know that this PDF is out there.
