Fender Custom Shop Artisan Series Buckeye Burl Top Double Esquire NOS Aged Natural 2021 [SN CZ555998] (06/06)

$ 4293.73

Made in 2021. The Artisan Series uses the finest hand-selected woods, and this is a Custom Shop-style crossover model based on a double-esk wire with F-holes and a figured buckeye burl top!

The most distinctive feature of this model is the high-class buckeye burl that adorns the top. The contents will make wood enthusiasts groan with its monstrous looks. The back wood, which serves as the tone wood, is made of roasted pine. Roasted pine is used not only for amplifier cabinets but also for guitar bodies. It is a traditional wood that was used in the early days of Esquire and has a character similar to ash. The binding around the body is made of herringbone, while the f-holes are made of thin line.
The neck shape is made of loin-studded maple with a bird’s eye and flame pattern, and the neck is made of 60s Oakwood. The neck shape is “60s Oval C” with a few peculiarities. The frets are 6105 and the fretboard surface is 9.5 inches.
The neck side has an open-top cover construction for a good tone. DC resistance is about 7.9k on the neck side and 9.8k on the bridge side, which is based on vintage tone. The rear position is mounted at an inverted angle, which makes the treble string side sweet and the bass string side tight.
The bridge is also chamfered at both ends of the brass saddle, giving it a Telecas-like look, but with a player-friendly shape. The lacquer finish is applied to all parts of the instrument to give it not only a great look but also a great sound.

There are some scratches, dents, and cracks on the body. There is a 1.5cm crack on the right side of the center of the f-hole, which has been glued and polished. This is not unique to this particular model, as a similar condition was observed on a different model that we had. There is a 2cm paint crack on the right side of the neck joint and a pea-sized ding on the lower right side of the body back. There is also a ding on the lower right edge of the body back, the size of a grain of rice. There is no noticeable damage or signs of use to any hardware.

The neck is in good condition, and the truss rod can be adjusted to tighten or loosen. Currently, the string height is adjusted at about 2.0mm on the 12F 6th string side and about 1.5mm on the 1st string side.

Overall, there are some cracks, dents, and paint cracks, but there are no noticeable signs of use and it is in good condition. This is not a mainstream vintage style guitar, but it is a Custom Shop style guitar with a lot of ideas. The fully loctite and thinline design gives the guitar a full raw sound, and when output from an amp, the organic sound is sure to captivate players! This is one of our recommended models that not only looks good, but also sounds great!
