Parts Esquire



One of my home made guitars.

Modified traditional Esquire switching with a Stew-Mac bridge and a Zenon gold foil pickup. Switch down: bypass controls, switch middle: enables volume and tone, switch up: subtracts about 6db volume and some treble in addition to control settings. The ash body is fairly heavy and the neck is CIJ, probably from a J&D brand guitar.

A minimalist approach to a classic, this guitar was one of my favorites.

It was sold in the great guitar purge of 2019.

Looks like a fun project. I am starting to feel some arthritis in my hands so am trying to get away from thoughts of accumulating any more instruments. I can still have fun for a while, though.

I'm missing it so I've been looking at guitar kits again.
