Fender has teamed up with country superstar Brad Paisley to create the Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Esquire guitar.

Paisley's latest signature Fender features a paulownia core with a spruce top and back, a Road Worn finish with a Black Sparkle lacquer, and a custom Enhanced “V”-shaped maple neck with a 9.5” radius fingerboard.

The guitar is outfitted with two pickups: a custom-wound '64 Tele bridge pickup and, notably, Paisley's new Seymour Duncan signature “Secret Agent” Esquire neck pickup. Mounted underneath the guitar's black-and-silver paisley pickguard, it offers the tonal options of a traditional Tele, while maintaining both the Esquire's trademark bridge pickup sustain and classic looks.

The guitar is also outfitted with a three-saddle string-through Tele bridge with compensated brass barrel saddles.

“The Esquire is a streamlined, working-man’s guitar,” Paisley said. “It’s really important to me that you hear an echo of the past in the stuff that I do, and in that sense, this guitar encompasses what I try to do musically. It has a retro feel, but at the same time, it’s progressive, with a new style of pickup that hasn’t been done before.” 

The Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Esquire is available now for $1,399.99
