I purchased this a month or two ago. Made in Japan/ Fender Japan Esquire. Very very very rare nowadays. Unfortunately, the previous owner added the neck pick up and modified the electronics. Fortunately, when I bought it, it came with the original wiring and pickguard so it's easy to return it to its original state. Will get around to returning it eventually. Also came with a hard case but have bought a FENDER SKB hard case for it.

Double Bound
Sunburst
Aged beautifully. Neck is straight and frets have been replaced with NOS frets with exact same spec. Neck is flamed depending on the angle you're on. Very easy to play etc.
Bridge pickup is original.
Neck is USA Tele Pickup

I wasn't planning on buying one but this one played beautifully!! Very happy! Now I have 2 guitars..

Enjoy the photos!
