Something about the Esquire has always fascinated me. Seeing Luthers' at the Johnny Cash museum reinforced the desire. So, here she is. Started as a $199.99 Squier Tele. Paid 17.99 for the pickguard, $10.00 for decal paper and $4.00 for clear paint. Still came in under $250.00. I took Stefans' advice and wired it Eldred Mod style. A friend gave me an original Tele control plate with 250K pots and the real switch not the solid state that comes on the Squier. It sounds amazing. I am really happy with it. Must confess it is getting the most attention now. Although I am working on Folsom Prison Blues. The jackplate and bridge are not changed, maybe later. Pretty close to it as it is. Luther used a buckle set with double keepers, I could not find one. Here are the Obligatory pics!!
