....where the forearm wear Fender loves will make sense?
Didn’t they make a Custom Shop version?
(I assume your question is tongue-in-cheek, maybe...but I seem to remember a re-creation of Jeff’s Esquire...based on the original, owned by Seymour Duncan, if I remember correctly)...
Beck played a guitar with no whammy bar?
Tele pauls rule!!
No they made a high cost version. There are pictures of Seymour , who owns it now , measuring everything for Fender.
Jeff called it : " That old piece of........fine equipment " LOL.....
If I remember correctly, Jeff's Esquire wasn't forearm wear....he had it sanded down.
Telecasters and Les Pauls, long before Strats.
Or are you making a joke? My bad!
All you would have to do on a Road Worn Telecaster
is take the neck pickup out and redo the wiring etc.
The Custom Shop ones sold for $20k IIRC, so they probably have made years' worth of MIM profit off of many fewer builds.
And the arm wear is a forearm cut that was sanded out on the original.
I saved money and just got the coffee mug instead.
Yes, a Jeff Beck Esquire
His guitar was in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for a while. Or maybe it was a duplicate. Beat to heck, but really cool.
I played one at the Music123 HQ in South Bend ID about 13 years ago. It was just sitting there on a stand, not expecting that for a $15K guitar. Best feeling Tele I've ever played.
Why won't they make a Road worn Squier Esquire
Jeff is too brainy for the unwashed masses to buy copies of a guitar he played back when he was still just a dumb kid.
