I’ve been inspired. And one man is to blame. You know who you are.

    It’s actually a 1994 Fender Mexican Standard. It was my main gigging guitar for a lot of years. It’s just fantastic. Last year, I stripped the guitar and refinished in Tru-Oil. Watching your Esquire escapades inspired me to turn this Tele in an Esquire.

    No switch whatsoever though. Just bridge pickup to volume n tone.

    If you just had to guess, how many gigs would you think you played with that guitar?

    All done. This is one fantastic guitar. This one has been with me since teen years. It’ll probably go in my coffin with me. Lol.

    She is super happy as an Esquire!!

    Congrats on completing a beautiful build.

    Great looker, with a ton of memories built right into it.

    Can't have any guitar more inspiring than that.

    Nice work, Tony. But to be honest, I'm more interested in hearing than seeing it.

    We will have to nickname you "The Bar". Everytime someone passes you, we wind up with an esquire.

    Sorry, had to include a lawyer joke.
