    Re: The Esquire files

    For me, one of the most cool looking and sounding guitars ever whose versatility is a little overrated because of its “specialist” tone, especially in stock esquire wiring format. Just based on handling a number of reissued and replicas and one particular early 50s original.

    I also realize however, that I am in the minority.

    Not at all.

    Thanks to the Gristle King, everyone knows that a single pickup guitar produces superior sound, because two (or more) pickups suck up the tone juice.

    I just saw a picture of Joe B holding the black Esquire from the
    First catalogue. I didn’t know it was still around. Maybe Joe can tell us more?

    David Davidson is a member here (WeBuyGuitars). You could ask him if you don't hear from JBLPlayer.

    This is probably the nicest Esquire I ever had, a late 1954 white guard:





    I have heard lately that it is in the hands of a touring pro who uses it.

    Great looking guitars. I like the idea of a single pickup tele. But why the selector switch?
