(SOLD) Fender Esquire Custom Celtic Telecaster Sage Green Metallic 2003
Fender Esquire Custom Celtic Tele, made in Korea 2003. This is a 2003 limited edition model, so there's not heaps around. It's built for melting faces: single high output HB pickup, super slim set-neck, jumbo frets, lightweight slim body... it's all there to get you playing hard and fast. The body is super light and comfy, it's the kind of guitar you can really move around easily with. The 'sage green' finish looks more like silver in most lights, it's a really cool satin-metallic look that pops brilliantly under lights. The celtic inlay on the 12th fret is a nice touch; it's intricate and classy without being too 'showy'. This is a pure rock machine looking for someone to 'treat it mean, keep it keen'.
