Cool looking Telecaster!Partscaster.
Gotoh engraved hardware (including neck plate)
Fender Classic 50s Lacquer MiM neck
Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups with "Baja Tele" wiring (4-way + S-1 switch)
Body paint by Shawn Fintel @ GuitarPaintGuys
I have a twin Strat build underway... but the body was a POS import and the holes are screwed up... need to plug and re-drill for the neck and tremolo.

Where did you get the Esquire body? The finish is perfect.I used to own 3 Teles, but traded one in against my SG Standard.
'54 Esquire replica I put together using a Fender MIM neck (Fat U '51), that I refinished with tinted clear nitro. The White Blonde is a MIM Classic 50s Lacquer model, with Fender Original Vintage pickups and some cosmetic changes to make it more like a '56.
Before the Esquire neck refinish:
