The wait begins.
Looks nice. Always liked the classic vide Telecasters. Great budget Tele.
Since "Squire" is a shortened version of "Esquire", the naming seems kinda silly
That’s definitely a guitar I’d consider if it would be available here in Italy.
It's a Squier Esquire. Close but not the same. I like it silly.
It's a factory special run on pre order only at the moment. Dunno if they're gonna be Europe wide. Could always get one from here in the UK.
I’m seriously considering the option. It’s a real bargain for the money.
I once played a ‘50s Esquire at a friend’s house and it’s been by far the most amazing Tele-type guitar I ever tried. Of course I don’t expect this one to be at the same level, still it has the features that intrigue me.
The only doubt, I’m not much a solid body type anymore. I like my guns to be hollow.
Is it wired like a trad Esquire? With mud caps and whatnot?
Very cool! It will be incumbent on you to learn “Luther Played the Boogie” and play it at least once.
Not sure. There's no details on the wiring specs.
The FSR will be available at all major Fender/Squier dealers, not just Andertons.
It's an attractive guitar at a good price so I looked up the specs.
9.5 radius(good) small frets(bad) Poplar body(meh) so I rather just get another Pine CV '50s Tele, drop in an Esquire pickguard and rerout the electronics.
This would be a guitar for me. I like the look and the fact that it has only one pickup. The price is fine, too.
The specs I looked at mentioned tall skinny frets. Yay. C shaped neck, 9.5 radius, Yay. The CV neck is too thin and too flat for me, and I hate the low frets. I don't even like the pine grain showing through on the CV. Good pickups on the 50s CV though.
Still not as bad as The Klingon Imperial Empire.
Meanwhile in another galaxy there is a metric one.
The V.C. Squier Company manufactured strings for violins, banjos, and guitars. It was established in 1890 by Victor Carroll Squier in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 1965, the company was acquired by Fender.
Congrats. Looks pretty cool. PU and not Polyester sounds good. I‘d bet you‘ll need a better pickup, but all in all good deal. I‘ve started an Esquire build myself,
@ Ricochet with a poplar/aspen body.
Only available in the UK and man, those pickguard screws look like a mockup, no?
