Now you can Rock the Casbah too! The Legendary Joe Strummer played guitar with an intensity that cut like a knife! His raw energy and passionate intensity was evident with every swipe at the strings. Joe Strummer was the embodiment of Punk culture and a crucial component to its development. His style was direct, honest, and empowering to the listener which would create legions of die-hard fans around the world.
Best known for his work with The Clash, Strummer and his bandmates were a major part of creating punk rock and has inspired countless other bands to this day. Strummer commanded the stage like a fiercely determined punk rock commander and blasted songs out of his guitar like a machine gun. His most heavily used guitar throughout the London Calling and Combat Rock era was his tried and true Fender Esquire. A perfect match for his stripped down, no nonsense delivery, the Esquire was the ultimate tool for Strummer to hammer away on, show after show, working out angst and often having his drummer beat the strings with drumsticks during songs. The guitar was one of Strummer’s favorites and appeared on many of the most famous Clash performances, especially in the latter years of the band.
Master builder Jason Smith has reincarnated the Joe Strummer Esquire to its Clash-era look in exacting detail - Complete with a black Racing Stripe, custom “Bourbon Street” sticker and custom Relic finish. Not just for the collector, this guitar is built to take a beating and produce straight-ahead and searing tone for anyone bold enough to wield it in combat on stage.
Features include a 2-piece Alder body with period correct offset seam, 1-ply eggshell pickguard, flat-sawn Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, 9.5” radius, medium jumbo frets, a ’59 “C” shaped neck profile and Schaller mini tuning machines. A top-load/string-through Tele bridge assembly is set up with one killer Josephina hand-wound 55/56 bridge pickup, wired up to a 3-way switch and a ‘59 Esquire wiring. Certificate of Authenticity, Strap and a custom pink Anvil case with “Strummer” stencil and genuine imitation leopard lining.
