FT: Fender CS Esquire/Tele Relic 55 Reissue, limited edition

fretfinderfretfinder Frets: 1739
edited January 17 in Guitars £
Fender limited edition CS Esquire Relic, 55 reissue. Comes with spare Tele guard, switchplate and neck pickup, for simple conversion from Esquire to Tele if you so wish. Quartersawn chunky maple neck with the 10/56 soft V profile, 9.5” radius and 6105 frets. Complete with limited edition embroidered case, COA and candy. Great sounding Josefina pickups. Super lightweight at just 6lbs 10oz and very resonant. 

Ideally I’m looking to do a straight swap for a lightweight Fender CS Strat Relic with rosewood fingerboard, preferably with a larger neck profile than the typical 60s slim shape, but anything considered. I might also be interested in other CS Relics, or an older Martin or Gibson acoustic, or a Historic Les Paul, or a vintage LP Junior or SG Junior. Cash difference either way as appropriate.

Based in Salisbury in Wiltshire but I have a guitar box/carton and could ship it, or I could deliver within a reasonable distance for petrol money. Thanks for looking.

    Very nice!  I was tempted to get one of these when they were around a couple of years ago.  I haven't got any of the things on your swap list, though.

    When you mentioned "larger neck profiles", did you mean larger than the 10/56, or just the bigger CS neck shapes (as opposed to the Mid-Sixties C or whatever)?

    I just meant larger than the typical 60s slim necks you get on most rosewood board Strats. Thanks.

    Understood.  Although I have to say, those skinny necks have probably saved me from blowing a lot of money on rosewood board Strats....

    The 60-63 re-issue necks are pretty slim. The AVRI '65 neck has more substance to it. :)
    I fear the Geeks, even when they bear GIFs.

    I've got a thinline Tele with the custom shop '65 profile, which I assume is similar to the '65 AVRI.  It's OK, reasonably fat around the 12th fret (as I think the '60 to '63 ones are too), but it's still too thin at the nut end.

    Sorry to derail the thread, by the way, but I guess it's a Bump!

    it is a 10/56 profile on that Esquire - I originally sold it so know it - So more meat than most 60's spec'd models - Less meat on the shoulders than the black guard Nocaster big 50's U profile - If I recall it has a big vibrant acoustic voice

    I have a 65 CS relic that has the oval profile but I think the OP is after a similar 10/56 rosewood strat neck. Any out there on a CS strat or would this be special order?

    For that specific neck profile on a rosewood board strat it would have to be a special order. But I’m not only after that exact neck shape - any rosewood board CS Relic would be considered!  :)

    very few, 60's spec'd models would have such a large neck - the 65 C is larger than a regular 60's C, yet still slimmer than a 10/56 and indeed the 51 Nocaster U profile - so yes chances are a custom order
