    Default Is this a Fender Esquire Custom Scorpion?

    Hey guys. I recently stumbled across a pic of a cool-looking Fender.

    Check it out-



    Is that a Fender Esquire Custom Scorpion?

    If so- I'm really intested in trying to find one, as I think Fender no longer makes them.

    Did the Esquire Custom Scorpion ever come in other colors besides black? Did it ever come with a maple fretboard?

    I appreciate any info, guys. Thanks all!
    Nothing beats a Fender
