The Fender Masterbuilt 50s "Stealth Esquire" are among the most sought-after electric guitars on the market; indeed, many are considered "instantly collectible."

Von der Custom Shop Legende JOHN ENGLISH eine STEALTH-ESQUIRE. Die Besonderheit dieser Gitarre erklärt sich aus dem Namen - unter dem Pickguard sind noch 2 weitere  Pickups "versteckt" - darum wurde auch ein 5 Wege Schalter verwendet. Noch etwas zur Geschichte:

Fender first dreamed up the "stealth" idea with the Fender Marauder of the mid-sixties, but it never made it past the catalog shoot. Fast forward to the modern age; as advances in technology made the B-2 bomber possible, similar advances in "stealth technology" pickup design have brought Leo Fender's Marauder vision to full fruition; bringing a wonderful mixture of Strat and Tele tones. The Masterbuilt 50s "Stealth Esquire" electric guitar from the Fender Custom Shop was designed by one of its most revered Master Builders “ the late John English. This is a limited run of 100 worldwide!


Da es sich um eine Kommissionsgitarre handelt ist keine Mehrwertsteuer ausweisbar.
