International guitar (mods)

Recommended Posts

Since buying this Squier Esprit (a what?! ... yeah I know) some years back, I have finally completed my last mod; new tuners.

While attending to this it occurred to me that this guitar had become truly international.

Guitar: Korean (South Korea)
Pickups: English (Creamery)
Bridge: Japanese (Gotoh)
Electrics: American (Switchcraft)
Tuners: German (Schaller)

I have happily spent more on mods than the purchase price of the guitar because it's (carcass) is simply exceptional. Its the equal of my USA guitars & I am not going to sell it.

Finding tuners that wouldn't foul themselves on this snakehead took a lot of careful measuring up:


Yes, this is a Fender copy of a Gibson style build. It was only in production for one year (and that was about 14 years ago).
