Joe Strummer campfire acoustic guitar

Post by magnificence »

Saw this an email from Fender today, new Joe Strummer acoustic guitar model. I'm not really one for "signature" guitars, but neat idea. Also apparently a new Joe Strummer Esquire model coming in 2021, too.

Saw that and thought it was cool. More intrigued by the Joe Esquire though. That'd be the black racing stripe/holiday guitar I assume. Would look pretty nice if that's the direction they go

I won't buy it but I definitely like the vibe of the acoustic. Those fender acoustics tend to sound like a tin can, but there's something very Joe to me about a cheap campfire acoustic that anyone can afford. Besides, you really want to play your j-200 in 45 degree weather by a fire?
The esquire is way more intriguing. So long as the finish is done better than the original signature. Man, that's the worst relicing I've ever seen. If it were mine to produce I'd have suggested it be flat black with a silver coat under it and a burst under that, so as it ages honestly it is at least in the spirit of joe's guitar.

Well the Esquire was finally announced and it's limited to 70 guitars that cost $15,000 a piece. I didn't expect it to be cheap but wasn't expecting 15k! Tough one but I think I'll pass.

Plus some other things that make lots of sense like a Joe Strummer signature guitar cable and a Know Your Rights snapback hat.

Cheaper just to buy a vintage Esquire at this point, probably.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Yeah most likely. Actually I was searching memorabilia online recently and a Tele actually owned by Joe sold for $18,000! Just a bit more than the new signature model.
