I ordered a BSB one
this was the correct choice.

Edit: I got the BSB confused with the Vintage White one posted on the last page.

Are the Esquires Made in Korea? Photos are from The Telecaster Forum.



No, if you go to the Anderton's page, you can see a picture of the back. You can use the magnifying glass, and it says "Crafted in Indonesia" on the back of the headstock. There's also another photo of the back of the headstock.

From the Telecaster forum

"Here you go...don't beat me up on grammar, or punctuation. This was a dhl shipping. I thought delivery was the 12th. I misread the tracking. The guitar was delivered yesterday, around 5:00 pm. Here's a few pic's. I must say I was very surprised, that the guitar was doubled boxed. This guitar is absolutely flawless. Excellent build quality, including hardware. I thought I would have to upgrade a few things, but this guitar needs nothing. The guitar is around 7.5 bathroom scale. I'm not a pro guitar player, when it comes down to neck spec's. The only thing I can compare the neck to, is previously owned guitars. I bought this guitar, because I was looking for a donor, for my Mare pickup. The neck isn't a modern C, which was uncomfortable, for my medium hands. This neck conforms to my hand, the way my Les Paul Traditional with a 50's neck. It's not as thick as my Les Paul neck, but it's just as comfortable. My tech will swap out the pickup soon, and I'll have him take neck measurements, and report back later. Buy this guitar.. it's gorgeous and sounds killer in my new Marshall. I'll do my best to answer any questions. Have mercy..I'm just a drummer who loves playing guitar. Cheers.."

From The Telecaster forum:

"Some of the key points I've mentioned that made me purchase was that it's an honest Esquire-no route under the guard. Another thing, it actually has the Esquire decal on a production guitar"

I don't think the Vintage White one is currently available. I ordered the BSB because it has a Pine body. The colored ones have a Nato body. Also...

Probably means the price on the CV Teles is going up for the model year too. Nice electronics in that Esquire gutshot pic tho.
