This project was inspired by Doug Myer's personal 1958 Gibson Les Paul Junior. It is an exceptionally fine example of an LP Junior in terms or raw tone and comfortable playability. From that example, Potvin Guitars made the first small batch of Project 58's, which were finished to look as new. These guitars were very well received and continued to be cherished by their owners.
Realizing that the guitars could be made closer to the original specification and desiring a more worn in look, Protocaster Guitars was enlisted to finish the guitars in a gently aged fashion. This small batch was limited to just four and this Project 58's serial number is "8 1902".
I was first impressed with this guitar's well-loved and well-played vintage look. I was then blown away by the feel of the substantial yet totally comfortable neck. Once I heard its long sustain and lively tone, I knew was a very special guitar. It has all the mojo of the few remaining, stellar examples of late-50's Juniors.

This is a custom ordered Fender Custom Shop 1959 Esquire Custom Relic. How's that for custom? This guitar is used but in immaculate condition with all of the extras and case candy.
It is #61 of a Limited Edition built for Fender's 2018 Summer Event. This Esquire Custom has an Ash body is finished in Super Faded Aged Lake Placid Blue. It also has Parchment binding on top and back.
The neck is a constructed of a gnarly, quarter-sawn AA Flame Maple. It is topped with a Flat Lam of dark Rosewood fretboard and dotted with vintage Clay markers. The necks feels substantial yet comfortable and plays easily with its Large "C" profile, 9.5" radius, and 6105 frets.
Making this single-pickup guitar more versatile is its Full Throttle Esquire wiring. The 3-way switch gives you the common Telecaster Volume + Tone sound, the classic Esquire Tone bypass, and a killer hardwired to output boost. Backing off the Volume and Tone a bit and grinding through the gears gives you a rockin' palette of tones!
Would you prefer a double-pickup Telecaster Custom? The Fender Custom Shop thoughtfully included a Hand-wired Tele neck pickup, a Control Plate with post-1967 standard Telecaster wiring, and a 1-ply Parchment pickguard with a neck route. The Custom Shop also included:
