Early ’50s-style looks with a hidden Seymour Duncan pickup.

The Fender Brad Paisley Esquire is the Grammy winner's second signature model in the company's lineup. A masterful player, Paisley has scored 19 number-one singles, each featuring a dazzling array of wild bends, open-string runs, chicken pickin’, jazzy chord changes, rock riffing and above all, a precise control of every single note. Brad's signature Esquire is a perfect vehicle for that type of playing—and more.

The body has paulownia center with a spruce top and back—a wood generally used on acoustic guitars. This combination is lightweight with response and extra resonance. The Road Worn sparkle finish highlights the fact that this Esquire is no wall-hanger. It's made to be played and could easily become your number one (and only). Paisley spec'd the instrument with a maple fretboard and maple neck, featuring an enhanced V-shape. Frets are medium-jumbos.

The Esquire was the first electric guitar from Fender. Introduced in 1950, it had a single pickup in the bridge. This Esquire cops that style with a custom Vintage Tele single coil in the bridge, but looks are deceiving—a Seymour Duncan Brad Paisley "Secret Agent" neck pickup hides under the pickguard. No matter the genre, this pickup duo will cover all of your musical bases.

The Fender Brad Paisley Esquire is customized with Brad's cowboy hat logo on the headstock and a paisley pickguard.
