Fender 1984 Made in Japan Esprit in Black

£1,599.00

Dan Smith had an idea – a solid body guitar with routed chambers that would provide unique resonant tonal characteristics. And he knew the shape he wanted.

In the early ’80s, Fender became interested in building instruments that would be viewed as high-quality alternatives to Gibson. Not copies, but highly playable guitars with versatile electronics and features. The company asked Smith for a concept, and what followed was an adventure to a line unique to Fender’s catalog.

Two of Smith’s designs were chosen for production – the Flame and the Esprit, with alder bodies routed with tone chambers, along with maple tops and set necks.

A rare guitar only made for an exclusive time period
In generally good condition with the exception on the marks on the back of the body and next to the jack socket.
In no way does this affect the play ability of the guitar.
Fully setup in store

The Flame’s body is slightly larger than Gibson’s Les Paul and has slightly offset cutaways similar to the SG. Two special-design humbucking pickups were developed via Schaller, as was a tailpiece with fine-tuners. The intent was to offer an electronically versatile alternative to the Les Paul.
