Fender Brad Paisley Esquire in Black Sparkle

Featuring hidden neck pickup and signature floral pattern

Written by

Cian Hodge

Country music superstar Brad Paisley puts his twist on the classic Fender Esquire, packing in a host of high class features such as a worn nitro relic finish, hidden neck pickup and of course, that famous floral pattern pickguard.


The Paisley Esquire is made of an extremely light paulownia wood akin to a more common ash, and will age exactly like the original vintage instrument thanks to the nitro lacquer.

Bolted on is a renowned Fender maple neck and fingerboard embedded with 21 comfortable medium jumbo frets. Brad Paisley has opted for an enhanced “V” shape neck – a fresh take on the old school Esquire profile working in tandem with the 9.5-inch radius fingerboard for a supreme feel.


The original Esquire is a charming, if slightly one-dimensional guitar housing just the one bridge position pickup. The Paisley, however, hides a brand new Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Brad Paisley Secret Agent pickup underneath the pickguard to dip into even more classic tones. This is based on his original La Brea set, giving you a fuller frequency sound to pair with the treble-heavy chime of the single coil in the bridge.
