The Squier Sonic Esquire boasts a classic solidbody electric guitar design, but it adds the perfect modern appointments to make it a contender for contemporary genres. This battle-ready axe is built out of a solid slab of poplar, which gives it balanced acoustic properties right out of the box. Its heavy-hitting ceramic bridge humbucker was designed to propel you into the sonic stratosphere at warp speed. Its comfortable "C"-shaped neck and fast-playing 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard are the perfect springboard for all manner of creative riffage. The Sonic Esquire features a rock-solid 6-saddle Tele bridge, sealed die-cast tuners, and attractive knurled control knobs. Finally, a sleek 1-ply pickguard, gleaming chrome hardware, and a near-bulletproof gloss polyester finish ensure that the Squier Sonic Esquire is well-equipped for any musical adventure you might embark on.
Made from solid maple with a laurel fingerboard, the "C"-shaped neck on Squier's Sonic Esquire is designed to deliver a powerful, robust tone and smooth playability — ideal for blistering lead runs and chords up and down the neck. Its 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard provides added playing comfort so that you can continue for hours without hand fatigue. Bends, runs, fingerpicking, and flatpicking all sound great on this beautifully designed, comfortable neck.
The Sonic Esquire has been wired for tone with a mind-blowing array of sound-shaping at your fingertips. Its ceramic bridge humbucker arms you with all the crunch and growl demanded by genres drenched in different levels of gain.
