Manufacturer's Description

The Paranormal Esquire® Deluxe imagines what the very first Fender model would have looked like if it had evolved into the 1970s, combining single pickup simplicity with innovative functionality and styling cues of the era. Multiple tonal personalities of the Fender-Designed Wide Range pickup are accessible via the 3-way rotary switch which selects single-coil, humbucking, or humbucking with volume and tone bypass settings. Other details include a vintage-style string-through-body hardtail bridge for optimal body resonance, a slim and comfortable “C”-shape neck profile with a slick gloss finish, and vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning.

Highlights

ROTARY SWITCH

Foregoing the typical toggle switch, this model features a 3-way rotary switch with a chickenhead amp knob for a unique look.

DELUXE PICKUP SETTINGS

The 3-way rotary switch toggles between three distinct output options: single-coil (up), humbucking (middle), and humbucking with volume and tone bypass (down).

FENDER-DESIGNED WIDE RANGE PICKUP

This model features a coil-splitting Fender-Designed alnico Wide Range humbucking pickup for superior tone suitable for a wide variety of musical settings.

STRING-THROUGH-BODY BRIDGE

A string-through-body bridge improves resonance through the body and increases string tension for a rock-solid feel.

VINTAGE-STYLE TUNING MACHINES

Sporting classic looks, these vintage-style tuning machines provide rock-solid tuning stability and smooth action.

GLOSS NECK FINISH

With a comfortable, slick feel and elegant appearance, a gloss neck finish is a classic Fender feature.
